President Trump’s antipathy toward climate science may help him with core supporters, particularly in coal-producing states, but it isn’t a viewpoint broadly shared by all Americans. More than 60 percent in the U.S. believes climate change is a problem the government needs to address, according to a recent University of Chicago poll. Even many Republicans are on board. The same poll found that among GOP voters who believe in climate science, seven out of 10 believe government should take action. Perhaps that’s why the recent U.S. climate assessment can plainly state that it is “extremely likely that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases, are the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century. For the warming over the last century, there is no convincing alternative explanation supported by the extent of the observational evidence” without an attempt by the White House to intervene and halt the report’s release. Even among deniers, there isn’t much confidence in their point of view, only in the political benefits of denial under the Trump version of hyper-nationalism.
