Not what they expected

When you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. When you have the law on your side, argue the law. When you have neither, holler.
Al Gore

Scientific American threw caution to the wind and asked its readers to fill out a poll on, “Taking the temperature: Climate change poll.” One would expect Scientific American’s readership to be educated, intelligent and informed, perhaps with many involved in science. Oh, Scientific American also espouses the threat of global warming.

So what came out of this poll? Not what Scientific American expected, that is for sure. 75.7% of the respondents think that climate change is caused by natural processes. 82.5% think the IPCC is corrupt. 76.9% would pay nothing to forestall global climate change. See the whole poll result here:

It is amazing they actually released the results of their poll. Of course, they have featured a couple of articles on scientist Judith Curry, the once global warming believer who is now questioning the lack of any evidence indicating anthropogenic (man-made) global warming (APG).

Perhaps the tide is turning. Even science publications are now willing to display a poll indicating, not only no consensus, but total disbelief.
