2010 -- Global Warming Progress??

By Jeanne Brown on February 23, 2010 11:30 AM | Permalink
Science Daily reported in late Jan. a survey done by Yale and George Mason university researchers on changes in opinions concerning global warming. Here are two items reported:

*"The percentage of Americans who think global warming is happening has declined 14 points, to 57 percent.

*The percentage of Americans who think global warming is caused mostly by human activities dropped 10 points, to 47 percent."

When SOA students were asked in an informal survey what percent *they* thought did not believe in global warming, the answers were all over the place. One said 0% in Vegas because it is too hot not to believe. Another said the younger generation takes this issue more seriously, so only 5% of 18-23 year olds would reject the concept. Yet another asserted that there is zero scientific proof that humans affect the earth's climate. Actual percentages given ranged from 2 (not counting the zero percent) to 75%.

Clearly more education/investigation is needed for those who will be responsible for changing the world one building at a time.
