Tom Nelson does some trend-spotting in ABC polling on carbon-dioxide and anthropogenic-global-warming fears.
Some ABC spin is here: ABC News: It’s Getting Hot in Here: 7 in 10 Try to Reduce ‘Carbon Footprint’
Actual poll results are here.
A few notes:
Only 25% (question 2) of those surveyed thought that global warming was the world’s single biggest environmental problem (multiple responses accepted). This is down from 33% last year.
Only 30% (question 3) trust the things that scientists say about the environment “completely” or “a lot”.
Only 33% (question 8) thought that a rise in the world’s temperatures was caused by “things people do”, down from 41% last year.
Only 33% (question 18) thought that “most scientists” agree with one another about the causes of global warming, and only 33% thought that “most scientists” agree with one another about how much of a threat global warming poses.
