Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

On March 6, The Yale Project on Climate Change Communication updated its data on public perceptions.

The report states the percentage of those classified “Alarmed (about global warming) have grown from 10 percent of the American adult population in 2010 to 16 percent in 2012. At the same time, (those classified) Dismissive have decreased in size, from 16 percent in 2010 to 8 percent in 2012.”
