  • The biggest change in the polling is among people who trust scientists only a little or not at all. About 1 in 3 of the people surveyed fell into that category.

    I think anyone who categorizes themselvesas "not trusting scientists" should be legally barred from recieving vaccines or flu shots, using a computer, watching tv or otherwise enjoy any benefit or product of "science"
  • It's going to get more obvious with evidence in the new few decades. Then we're still hosed by the time we all acknowledge it.
  • "Overall, 78 percent of those surveyed said they thought temperatures were rising and 80 percent called it a serious problem."

    So at least 2 percent of people think it's a serious problem that global temperatures aren't rising?
  • Ahhhh the power of television! Is there anything it CAN'T make people believe?

    Repeat something often enough and people are bound to start believing it, even if it isn't true.

    Winter haters gonna hate.
  • Well it took this long to get people to accept it exists, it will probably take decades to get people to actually do anything about it and by then we will be cooking alive.

    Okay this is about the same number (~28%) that we constantly see for the Tea Party, Freeperland, Da Derpers, you know, "... people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons." (insert Blazing Saddles pic here).

    Exactly. Which is why it has been so difficult to educate people about climate change.

    But...but...miracles?!?!?
  • Global warming leads to Ice Age. Figure it out.
  • I love this issue. One side of the fence wants to throw a bag of other people's money at it as a solution to the issue. The other side of the fence doesn't want their money tossed into the toilet.

    About a third of people will believe any stupid crap you tell them to.

    FTFY
  • "Well, sure tempshurs is risin', but it ain't got nothin' ta do with mah 4x4, dangit!"
  • Wait... So scientists are now saying that global warming/climate change is NOT real?! Did I miss a memo? I thought it was pretty well shown that shrinking glaciers alone, were pretty obvious evidence that the climate is changing.

    In other words, it's either:

    A) A political issue blown out of proportion with little basis in reality--at best a natural progression or just visible variation that's not really a trend

    or B) A real thing, being preached about by Chicken-Little morons whose entire plan is to execute Italian-style ineffective combat tactics and then act surprised that none of the stupid irrelevant crap they did worked

    Can we just ignore the problem?
  • Oh good. We hadn't quite finished beating this to death in the other thread yet.

    When the facts are overwhelming, as in the case of global warming, not believing in science just shows are stupid you are.

    Just keep them away from my food.
  • Sure the temperatures are going up, it is the anthropomorphic part that is a load of speculation and suspect correlation.

    Or it could be the population of pirates.

    It helps if you start early enough. You know, like sending kids to Sunday School and such.
