Quora discussion about the source of the “97% consensus”
claim, with good references from John Walker:

Doran paper is not the source of the claim. This is the article by
Cook et.al. that

there have multiple poorly done studies, all with severe selection
bias and/or other fallacies, which have been published claiming the
fallacious consensus (some 97%, some less).
far as I can tell, the first was Oreskes in 2004, which claimed 75%
consensus that humans affect climate. Duh!
Scientific Consensus on Climate Change
was followed by Doran et al in 2009:
then Cook et al in 2013:
i believe there may have been others, but none show a legitimate,
non-biased conclusion of such high consensus.
have been even more papers published debunking the 97% consensus
claim, but, for some reason, much of the corporate media and
leftist/globalist/alarmist websites have failed to publicize these!
here are just a few of the references debunking the 97%:
