Very interesting and thank you for sharing. Too bad the survey does not
differ between those "believing" in a more general ability of climates
to fluctuate/change and the related, and more timely issue, of
anthropogenic influences on that fluctuation/change. Those would be
some even more telling numbers. I find it sad to think that only 81% of
voters agree to "climate change" despite the broad acceptance of
climatic events like Ice Ages.
