Jan 19, 2014: Chris Mooney (Mother Jones) reports that "Global-Warming Denial Hits a 6-Year High." He reports that a new study from the Yale and George Mason University research teams on climate change communication " shows a 7-percentage-point increase in the proportion of Americans who say they do not believe that global warming is happening. And that's just since the spring of 2013. The number is now 23 percent; back at the start of last year, it was 16 percent....The percentage of Americans who believe global warming is human-caused has also declined, and now stands at 47 percent, a decrease of 7 percent since 2012. At the same time, the survey also shows an apparent hardening of attitudes. Back in September 2012, only 43 percent of those who believed that global warming isn't happening said they were either "very sure" or "extremely sure" about their views. By November of last year, that number had increased to 56 percent." Mooney and Mother Jones, of course, is reporting this information as a negative and he warns "Journalists take heed: Your coverage has consequences." I see it as a positive that the truth about the fraud that is in climate-change is being accepted more and more. But, of course, as is the usual summation, anyone who disagrees is can't have a legitamate reason. It's, rather, because they just don't understand: "All those media outlets who trumpeted the global warming "pause" may now be partly responsible for a documented decrease in Americans' scientific understanding." And, Mooney wrote a book titled "The Republican War on Science," and, hence always comes at the issue from that angle.
