Climate science may still be on the fence, but the majority of Americans now believe global warming is making severe weather events worse in the United States, a new study shows.

The study, conducted in March by researchers from Yale and George Mason Universities, says 69 percent of Americans agree that the warming of the Earth is playing some kind of role in the weather affecting the nation. In the northeastern part of the country, 71 percent of respondents believed this to be true.

it's all about perception.
people either believe that climate change/global warming is real. or they don't.
No cretin, there's such things as facts. Not in Fox News land, or in drug addict Limbaugh land, or in jeebus said the earth is 6000 years old land, but there are facts.

And there's testability.

o explain for us all Skippy, exactly what caused the previous ice ages and warm periods of Earth.
You dumb filth, your fallacy is beyond your reckoning.

Just because a phenomenon (change in co2 or in global temperature) happened in the past for one set of reason doesn't mean the same phenomenon (global warming) can't happen in the present day due to a different set of reasons.

I answered your unbelievably stupid question. Now you try and answer mine, Cletus, just to see how ignorant you are:

Is co2 a greenhouse gas?
Is human activity releasing greenhouse gases?
Do greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere?

Those are the most basic questions...which you can't answer.

Hey mongoloid, do you even "believe" the earth is more than 10000 years old? Just checking.

I don't think most people believe in this "global warming" stuff. In fact I don't know ANYONE who believes it.

I am still waiting on the "ice age" which "they" claimed was coming back in the 70's..... still waiting..........

In fact I believe that credible scientists DO NOT follow along with this "agenda science".

And wasn't this all exposed by emails a while back.... A BUNCH OF BULL!!

Man made glowbull warming is a hoax, Myth, Religion take your pick. Its absurd to think man activities have any real or lasting effect onthe planet, Its even more absurd to believe we can mitigate the climate by selling carbon credits.
