The results show that Scientific American’s readers (over 4,000 of them) are better informed than its editors.
A couple of examples:
What is causing climate change?
Greenhouse gasses from human activity 31.4%
Solar Variation 33.8%
Natural processes 76.7%
(responders could choose as many answers as they wished)
The IPCC is..
A corrupt organisation, prone to groupthink, with a political agenda 81.9%
How much would you be willing to pay to forestall the risk catastrophic climate change?
That’s because while climate changes all the time, there is no evidence of any impending catastrophe, and even if there were, we would be better off preparing for it, rather than making Canute like efforts to stop it (unfair to King Canute, but that’s another story).
