Mapping the world's opinions

Global warning has been a major concern for climate scientists for a few decades now. However, polling shows public discourse remains divided as to how real it is, what causes it and how to react to it.

Scientific consensus fans

Those willing to follow the evidence in climate science wherever it leads. Namely, that global warming is real, human-caused and disrupting. That said, there's nothing inherently wrong with all technology and modern life.

Deniers

Those who think concerns are overplayed and probably motivated by a left-wing agenda. Also those who think the Earth's climate system isn't changing at all (it might even be cooling down). Weather has always been messy and unpredictable anyway.

Radical environmentalists

Enthusiastic Mother Earth defenders. Preservation of nature borders on the sacred, and man has come to corrupt a transcendental balance with all his machinery and greed.
