Sci Am Poll: 81% Think the IPCC is Corrupt, with Group-Think & Political Agenda

  • Date: 06/11/10

‘Scientific’ American may regret taking their recent opinion poll on the state of Climate Science given the eye-opening results cast by their “scientifically literate” readership.

With a total of 5190 respondents, a consensus of 81.3% think the IPCC is “a corrupt organization, prone to group-think, with a political agenda” and 75% think climate change is caused by solar variation or natural processes vs. 21% who think it is due to greenhouse gases from human activity.

65% think we should do nothing about climate change since “we are powerless to stop it,” and the same percentage think science should stay out of the political process.

When asked “How much would you be willing to pay to forestall the risk of catastrophic climate change?” 76.7% said “nothing.”
