Pew Poll: Majority of Republicans Are Global Warming Deniers

A horrifying poll from the Pew Research Center shows that the energy lobbies, fundamentalists, and corrupt Republican mouthpieces have done an appallingly good job of brainwashing their followers into denying the science of global warming.

Pew’s headline for their article is “Majority of Republicans No Longer See Evidence of Global Warming,” but in truth it’s much worse than that — because the results show that even if they accept that the Earth is warming, only 16% of Republicans accept that human activity is to blame.

The Republican Party is going to have to answer to future generations for their lies and corruption on this issue, perhaps more than any other. They’re playing cynical political games with the very source of human life.
