Skeptics were also more likely to correctly say that if the North Pole icecap melted, global sea levels would not rise. One can test this with a glass of water and an ice cube – the water level will not change after the ice melts. Antarctic ice melting, however, would increase sea levels because much of it rests on land.
Arctic correct fact
– BUT HAVEN’T everyone learnt what the teachers should have taught regarding landrise resp Archimedes Principle?
When will they ever learn that land pressed down by Ice will rise when Ice melts AND that neither ice in water or on land causes higher sea levels! Only more Ice on land causes more land to press away more water and thus the sealevels changes!
Only fools and those who tries to scam everyone who learnt those basic physic facts tries such!
Are global warming skeptics simply ignorant about climate science?
Not so, says a forthcoming paper in the journal Advances in Political Psychologyby Yale Professor Dan Kahan. He finds that skeptics score about the same (in fact slightly better) on climate science questions.
The study asked 2,000 respondents nine questions about where they thought scientists stand on climate science.
On average, skeptics got about 4.5 questions correct, whereas manmade warming believers got about 4 questions right.
One question, for instance, asked if scientists believe that warming would “increase the risk of skin cancer.” Skeptics were more likely than believers to know that is false.
Skeptics were also more likely to correctly say that if the North Pole icecap melted, global sea levels would not rise. One can test this with a glass of water and an ice cube…
