Read the full story at Great Lakes Echo.

Stanford University recently conducted nationwide public opinion surveys about climate change. Among other questions, respondents were asked if global warming had been happening and if they believed the government should regulate greenhouse gas emissions.

One might assume that these numbers, wherever they may fall, would be fairly close together. But that wasn’t the case.

Strangely enough, there were instances of states with noticeable disparities – people who want greenhouse gases regulated but don’t believe they cause climate change, and people who believe in climate change but do not want to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.
