"Believe it or not, it’s nearly 2022 and some people still think we shouldn’t
do anything about the climate crisis. Even though most Americans understand
that carbon emissions are overheating the planet and want to take action to
stop it, attacks on clean energy and policies to limit carbon emissions are on
In a study out this week in the journal Nature Scientific Reports
researchers found that outright denying the science is going out of fashion.
Today, only about 10 percent of arguments from conservative think tanks in
North America challenge the scientific consensus around global warming or
question models and data. (For the record, 99.9 percent of scientists agree
that human activity is heating up the planet.) Instead, the most common
arguments are that scientists and climate advocates simply can’t be trusted,
and that proposed solutions won’t work."
