The New York Times reports on a new poll.
A record number of Americans understand that climate change is real, according to a new survey, and they are increasingly worried about its effects in their lives today.
Two important takeaways:
First, the results themselves. “I’ve never seen jumps in some of the key indicators like this,” one of the investigators said.
Second, the Times saw no need to “balance” the results with a statement from a self-identified scientist living in his mother’s basement. Further, they used the word “understand” four times to describe the respondents’ relationship to the facts of global warming.
And open thread.
