Perception of climate changeAuthor: Organization: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
Polling & Social Science
In a study of seasonal mean temperature anomalies, prominent climate scientist James Hansen asserts that the variability of local weather is the greatest barrier to public recognition of climate change.
In a related Washington Post article, he describes how his earlier predictions about climate change were too optimistic and that his new research has revealed a "stunning increase" in the frequency and severity of extreme weather.
