A whooping 40+% of Americans believe that the Earth is less than 10,000 years old. Are these the same people who are not worried about global warming induced climate change? Are they, also, the ones who believe that we are living in the end-of-times? If so, then I presume that they assume that a major nuclear holocaust is the most likely scenario? That would certainly put the rate of increase in global warming on hold for a bit. The climate change factor would then be that of cooling. I guess "two out of three" ain't bad?!
Note: I see the above human dynamic as being problematic because it demonstrates why such a high percentage of the population does not understand the physical science behind greenhouse gases.
