Sorry state of Americans’ knowledge of climate change

Americans’ scary scarcity of global warming knowledge, The Science Friday Blog,  October 29, 2010 by Neil Wagner Study: 52% of Americans deserve an “F” for their climate change researchers from Yale University and the University of Wisconsin have published results of a study that show just how little the American public understands climate change. If the authors of the study were to give grades to those surveyed, 1% would get an A,  7% a B,  15% a C,  25 % a D and  52% an F! Yikes! That IS scary!

On the bright side, 75% said they would like to know more about the issue and that schools should teach our children about climate change.
