Almost one-third — 32 per cent — said they believe climate change is happening because of human activity, while 54 per cent said they believe it’s because of human activity and partially due to natural climate variation. Nine per cent believe climate change is occurring due to natural climate variation. Two per cent said they don’t believe climate change is occurring at all.
That number is striking because of the politicized debate in the U.S. A large majority of Americans also say climate change is occurring (70 percent), but the rate of denial is certainly stronger, at 16 percent, according to a recent poll.
