Is Global Warming?
I understand that this year and last have been filled with debates about the economy and health care, both of which hit closer to home with Joe American. What I don't understand is how that translates into fewer people believing that global warming is happening.
The biggest losses are among Independents and moderate Democrats, who represent the margin of this issue, I suppose. Is anyone able to shed some light on why?
Compared with the totality of knowledge which is continually utilized in the evolution of a dynamic civilization, the difference between the knowledge that the wisest and that which the most ignorant individual can deliberately employ is comparatively insignificant. ~Fredrich Hayek in The Constitution of Liberty
