Rasmussen: 69% Believe Scientists Have Falsified Global Warming Research

At least somewhat likely


3 Aug 11 – (Excerpts) – The debate over global warming has intensified in recent weeks after a new NASA study was interpreted by skeptics to reveal that global warming is not man-made.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of American Adults shows that 69% say it’s at least somewhat likely that some scientists have falsified research data in order to support their own theories and beliefs, including 40% who say this is Very Likely. Twenty-two percent (22%) don’t think it’s likely some scientists have falsified global warming data, including just six percent (6%) say it’s Not At All Likely. Another 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here .)

Sixty-nine percent! More than two-thirds of American adults don’t believe the global warming propaganda! That’s good news.

The number of adults who say it’s likely scientists have falsified data is up 10 points from December 2009 .

Regardless of the cause of global warming, adults remain divided on whether to take action or not. While 40% believe Americans should take immediate action to stop global warming, 42% suggest waiting a few years.

Out of three scenarios, 30% of Americans say a period of dangerous global warming is likely to occur, while just four percent (4%) say a dangerous ice age is more likely. Half of adults (50%) say something in between is most likely to happen. Another 16% are not sure. These findings are little changed from past surveys.

But only four percent think a dangerous ice age is likely. Guess I still have my work cut out for me.

While a majority of U.S. voters still feel discovering new sources of energy is more important than reducing energy consumption, the number who feel this way has fallen to a new low. Voters also continue to believe there’s a conflict between economic growth and environmental protection .

Americans are no more enthusiastic than they were a year ago about buying a car that runs on alternative fuel.
