Irrational Warming Skeptics

If you encountered a controversy about the French Revolution, about which you knew nothing and you discovered 99% of historians held one view and 1% a dissenting view. On what grounds, could you justify asserting with absolute certainty that the majority view was wrong? I would think you would have to do some study first. This is what Republicans refuse to do about global warming. But then, they are not confused, just lying because they are paid to.
