NASA data shows the first six months of 2016 were globally the hottest on record, with each month setting its own respective record. A list of American scientific organisations and a worldwide list of scientific organisations that agree climate change is a result of human activity shows the scientific consensus is overwhelming.
However an IPSOS survey shows only 54% of Americans believe that climate change is the result of human activity. The lowest of any of their surveyed countries!
Sadly the reporting of statistics within the mainstream media is poor and the general populations understanding of complex scientific issues is always going to be low.
At EnviroBuild, we hope XKCD’s graphic showing the data simply, comically and graphically, might swing a few more people around and force governments to make the actions they’re currently too slow to make! Share away!
