Intriguing result from a US survey:
1. Which of the following is most likely to occur to the planet Earth ... a period of dangerous global warming, a dangerous ice age, or something in between?
29% Period of dangerous global warming
5% Dangerous ice age
52% Somewhere in between
14% Not sure
Did you notice that 52% of people are rolling the dice and betting on a period of dangerously in between-ness?
When it comes to climate, I would have thought a little, or a long, bit of "something in between" would be excellent, comforting, secure, middling, mild, happy. A little bit of "just right".
Less puzzling is that the same house of surveying of humans found that only 36% of people agree that Al Gore has a clue.
