Almost three in four of Americans accept recent global warming, according to a new poll conducted for the Washington Post and Stanford University — but only three in ten agree that it is mainly due to human activity.

Asked “Do you think that the world’s temperature probably has been going up [“slowly” was used with half of the sample] over the past 100 years, or do you think this probably has not been happening?” 73% of respondents said yes, 25% of respondents said no, and 2% indicated that they didn’t know or refused to answer.

That’s from the NCSE

Here’s the study (PDF)

    In a smoky factory if we measure the level of oxyzen we find lower than outside that means due to our activity environment loses fineness which should be understood by all.
