False Precision : The Norm In Climate Science

False precision (also called overprecision, fake precision, misplaced precision and spurious accuracy) occurs when numerical data are presented in a manner that implies better precision than is actually the case; since precision is a limit to accuracy, this often leads to overconfidence in the accuracy as well.[1]

In science and engineering, convention dictates that unless a margin of error is explicitly stated, the number of significant figures used in the presentation of data should be limited to what is warranted by the precision of those data.

False precision – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Essentially all climate alarmists massively overstate their precision, because they aren’t real scientists.

    I think if you look at the claim that 97% of climate scientists believe in global warming, you would find that the truth could be that 102% of climate scientists believe in global warming.
