Its official, 97% of peer-reviewed science papers, that expressed a preference, agree that climate change is caused by human activity.
Academics have surveyed nearly 12,000 academic papers penned by 29,000 scientists. There were 4,000-plus papers that took a position on the causes of climate change and less than 100 of these disputed the scientific consensus that climate change is the result of human activity.

Call me a cynic but all I could think about was the “8 out of 10 owners who expressed a preference said their cats preferred it” Whiskers ad and how I didn’t believe that either.

And later still I decided that it really is missing the point because it does not matter what the cause is, it is the effects we have to worry about.
