heat-trapping gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and water vapor.
Water vapour is far and away the dominant greenhouse gas on Earth. Not the end of the list.
75% have read or heard nothing about either coral bleaching, linked to warmer ocean water temperatures, and 77% are similarly uninformed about ocean acidification, driven by the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide
No one has shown any link between ENSO or AMO and CO2. Recent ocean acidification is purely hypothetical, and correlation with CO2 is non-existent.
39% say that most scientists think global warming is happening, while 38% say there is a lot of disagreement among scientists. (In reality, a 2010 analysis of expert climate scientists’ studies found at least 97% of them think global warming is happening.)
Not surprising that people who are paid to produce reports on global warming believe in it. Here is a more realistic view from the American Physical Society, as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle.
Dissenting physicists urged members to contact APS biggies, who reviewed input from members. According to APS, some “63 percent of respondents supported the existing statement with little or no change, while 37 percent said they opposed the current statement and wanted either no statement or the alternate statement adopted.”
