WEATHER OR NOT

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Some­body no­tify Al Gore. Again. Yet an­other poll dis­pelling no­tions about cli­mate change: 63 per­cent of Amer­i­cans say re­cent se­vere weather is caused by weather cy­cles, while 26 per­cent blame it on global cli­mate change.

Six per­cent say “God is send­ing a mes­sage,” this ac­cord­ing to a new IBOPE Zogby In­ter­ac­tive sur­vey of 2,376 U.S. adults con­ducted June 2 to 6.

“Po­lit­i­cal ide­ol­ogy and party are the largest vari­able fac­tors in re­sponses,” the sur­vey says. “Cit­ing global cli­mate change are 66 per­cent of lib­er­als and 52 per­cent of Democrats, while just 2 per­cent of both con­ser­va­tives and Repub­li­cans say the same.”
