Huge swing in the percentage of people who think that Global Warming is man made

Rasmussen Reports finds this huge swing -- going from 47 percent blaming human activity to 34 percent.

Just one-out-of-three voters (34%) now believe global warming is caused by human activity, the lowest finding yet in Rasmussen Reports national surveying. However, a plurality (48%) of the Political Class believes humans are to blame.

Forty-eight percent (48%) of all likely voters attribute climate change to long-term planetary trends, while seven percent (7%) blame some other reason. Eleven percent (11%) aren’t sure.

These numbers reflect a reversal from a year ago when 47% blamed human activity while 34% said long-term planetary trends.

Most Democrats (51%) still say humans are to blame for global warming, the position taken by former Vice President Al Gore and other climate change activists. But 66% of Republicans and 47% of adults not affiliated with either party disagree.

Sixty-two percent (62%) of all Americans believe global warming is at least a somewhat serious problem, with 33% who say it’s Very Serious. Thirty-five percent (35%) say it’s a not a serious problem. The overall numbers have remained largely the same for several months, but the number who say Very Serious has gone down.

Forty-eight percent (48%) of Democrats say global warming is a Very Serious problem, compared to 19% of Republicans and 25% of unaffiliateds. . . . .

Personally I'm shocked that more than 4% ever bought into this fraud to begin with...

I thought that Josef Goebbels was dead...

Too bad his philosophy did not die with him.

To even contemplate that the infestation of humans upon planet Earth somehow dictates weather, is a very self centered and greedy concept. We are not that important in the general scheme of things.

Just because we can do math, does not mean we are the masters of all.
