"The more you think you know, the more you think you're right," goes an old saying. Now comes a study of sex, skin color and political ideology that suggests it pretty much sums up how some white male conservatives in the United States respond to climate change. "Even casual observers" of those who argue that climate change isn't a serious problem "likely notice an obvious pattern," Aaron M. McCright of Michigan State University in East Lansing and Riley E. Dunlap of Oklahoma State University in Stillwater write in Global Environmental Change: The most prominent denialists are conservative white males" -- from media pundit Rush Limbaugh to politicians like Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe. But the pair wondered: "Does a similar pattern exist in the American public?"... Overall, while 29.6 percent of conservative white males (CWMs) believed that the effects of global warming "will never happen," just 7.4 percent of all other adults shared that view. Similarly, 58.5 percent of CWMs -- but only 31.5 percent of all other adults -- denied that recent temperature increases are primarily caused by human activities.
