This survey mirrors a paper, Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature, to be published soon in Environmental Research Letters, that analysed over 12,000 climate papers published between 1991 to 2011. The purpose of the survey is two-fold. Firstly, to replicate the experience of rating a random assortment of climate papers, gaining appreciation of the diversity of climate research available. Secondly, an invitation to this survey has been sent to a wide range of climate blogs in order to analyse ratings from a diverse range of participants.
The survey adheres to the guidelines for ethical review at the University of Queensland. You'll find the survey at http://survey.gci.uq.edu.au/survey.php?c=58TN3BFHYXYL.
