You Do Need A Weatherman To Know Which Way The Climate Science Goes

ten-tall-tales-climate-change-skeptics-29-Jun-11I’d like to think that most human brains can accept data and facts that may not comport with their individual, subjective experience.  But that would probably require denying reality, in its own ironic way.

And so it is with climate science, according to a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal, as reported by E&E News [paywall]:

People who live in areas where high temperature records are broken are more likely to believe in global warming than those who do not. In areas that experienced record lows, people were less inclined to believe in the mainstream climate science that shows human activity is warming the Earth.

And hence we have a U.S. Senator throwing a snowball on the senate floor as evidence that global warming is a hoax.
