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.

Taxmen

Regulate industry, impose a carbon tax, then let the free market take flight from there. It will eventually take us to desirable CO2 levels. Explore

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.

Deflationists

Global warming might be real, but there's little we can do to counteract it because it's the product of natural causes. Explore

Conspiracy theorists

Big science is in cahoots with the lefties and their media to convince us that a disaster is about to happen. Such a lie!, the Earth's climate system isn't warming. Explore

Fossil fuelers

Human progress goes hand in hand with increases in energy consumption; this can be seen in areas such as sanitation. Therefore the net benefit of using hydrocarbons is positive. Explore

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.

Ecoterrorists

Global warming is a threat so big that violent acts and sabotage is necessary to stop it Explore

Deep ecologists

Humans are but one component in a living environmental system. We must restructure our values and lives to consider the preservation of all natural beings. Explore
