Americans Don’t Know About The Overwhelming Scientific Consensus Of Climate Threat

Only one in seven Americans correctly answered Yale survey questions that “between 81 and 100 percent” of climate scientists think “global warming is happening” and is “caused mostly by human activities.” While a mere 3 percent of respondents thought that less than 20 percent of scientists stood behind climate change, about a third of the country does not know enough about the subject to offer an estimate. In fact, around 97 percent of scientists agree that the climate changes seen today are mainly due to human activity. — Sarah Bufkin
