Recently a survey taken by the National Registry of Environmental Professionals asked nearly 800 environmental scientists and practitioners about human impacts on climate change. The results of this survey, according to James Taylor of the Heartland Institute, were rather surprising: “According to the survey, some 34 percent of environmental scientists and practitioners disagree that global warming is a serious problem facing the planet and 41 percent disagree that the planet’s recent warmth ‘can, in large part, be attributed to human activity.’ When you also find that a hefty 70 percent don’t believe that man’s activities have any significant impact on recent hurricane activity, it’s apparent the scientific debate isn’t over when it comes to global warming.”
