Which Global Warming View Do You Identify With?
Sadly there is still a relatively large percentage of people in this world that do not fully believe in global climate change and those who have completely dismissed it.
Seeking to fully understand the differing opinions in America, researchers at Yale University attempted to categorize these different views and found that there are essentially six American views on the issue: The Alarmed, the Concerned, the Cautious, the Disengaged, the Doubtful, and the Dismissive.
The Alarmed made up 18% of Americans. People who fall into this category are very much convinced that climate change is happening, that human-activity is the prime cause of it, and that it is a serious and urgent threat. These informed people are already making good changes in their lives to minimize the impact, and argue for strong national action to prevent climate change.
On the polar opposite of this view is....
The Dismissive made up 7% of Americans. This group is very much engaged with the issue of climate change but believe that it is decidedly not happening, does not deserve a strong national response, and is not a threat to either humanity or the world more broadly. Wow.
What group do you fall under?
