Rasmussen Poll: 69% Say It’s Likely Scientists Have Falsified Global Warming Research

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.

Finally, sanity may prevail.

I first heard that humans were causing global warming back in the late 1980’s, just after the environmentalists gave up on the global cooling hooey. I thought it was ridiculous then but didn’t give it much thought because I didn’t think anyone would believe it. Little did I know then that this bit of utter nonsense, which I thought was obvious to nearly everyone, instead would delude the minds of people around the world, nor that it would take 20 years to dispel.

No wonder the book Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds has remained in print continuously since it was first published in 1841. The date is not a typo. 1841.

It might be time for an updated edition.
