Dr. John: It is embarrassing that about 25% to 30% of our country still are "deniers" about man-made influences impacting climate change. Most of them are Republicans who think political opinion and argument is as credible as climate science. And it's even more embarrassing when every other advanced country in the world accepts the science. Pew Research polled 40 nations, all of which had majorities accepting the almost universal finding of actual climate scientists. 54% thought that man-made climate warming was a very serious problem (as opposed to just accepting the science). Conservative Republicans are increasingly a global joke. That's fine for clowns, but the problem is that they present an image of stupidity and ignorance to the world. I suppose they think of Republicans as we think of the North Koreans: most lack good information and are blinded by political propaganda.
