A new poll on global warming has fascinating, important tidbits on public opinion about global warming. The AP finds that one-third of the population has little or no belief in science, and this large group has been among the most resistant to climate change science. But something is causing this group to rethink.
Among the science doubting group, acceptance that climate change is real jumped from 47% in 2009 to 61% today. That's an important change among a key section of the public.
Overall, 78% of the public agrees that the climate is warming. As always, a hard core of about 20% is impervious to all evidence and science. Among deniers, every piece of new evidence and science supporting unfolding climate change is a trigger for deepening denial.
