“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.” - Isaac Asimov
97% of climate scientists believe that global warming is real and that humans are the primary cause of it. By contrast, the latest Gallup poll shows only 71% of Americans think that “most scientists believe global warming is occurring,” and fewer than half say they “worry a great deal about global warming.” Whether Americans’ “what – me worry?” attitude, or their skepticism regarding legitimate science changes much after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma is anyone’s guess. But either way, Nature happens.
