More Americans Believe Global Warming is ‘Exaggerated’

gallupglobalwarming21At 41 percent, the proportion of Americans who think global warming is exaggerated has been on a steady climb since 2006, when only 30 percent of Americans surveyed by Gallup said that.

Gallup attributes the rise to Republicans and independents believing media coverage of global warming is exaggerated. In the past 12 months alone, the ranks of Republican doubters grew from 59 percent to 66 percent, and independents from 33 percent to 44 percent. Among Democrates, the rate remains about 20 percent.

The EPA recently reported that greenhouse gas emissions grew 1.4% in 2007. Scientists say climate change is approaching a “critical threshold.”

Further research says that climate damage is unstoppable.

  1. Combating climate change may not be a question of who will carry the burden but could instead be a rush for the benefits, according to new economic modeling presented at “Climate Change: Global Risks, Challenges & Decisions” hosted by the University of Copenhagen.

    Contrary to current cost models for lowering greenhouse gas emissions and fighting climate change, a group of researchers from the University of Cambridge conclude that even very stringent reductions of can create a macroeconomic benefit, if governments go about it the right way.

    “Where many current calculations get it wrong is in the assumption that more stringent measures will necessarily raise the overall cost, especially when there is substantial unemployment and underuse of capacity as there is today”, explains Terry Barker, Director of Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR), Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge and a member of the Scientific Steering Committee of the Congress.

  2. It is a fox news world. Siberian pools are not really bubbling methane, Siberia is not a ticking time-bomb the size of Germany and France. The permafrost is not melting. Murdock is not a card carrying McCarthyist. Children all over the world will thank Murdock because Climate Change and ocean acidification are not man made in his Fox News World.
