Scientific Knowledge diminishes AGW hoax fears

Nature Climate Change
Fox News on a paper in the journal Nature Climate Change:
Are global warming skeptics anti-science? Or just ignorant about science?
Maybe neither. A study published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change finds that people who are not that worried about the effects of global warming tend to have a slightly higher level of scientific knowledge than those who are worried.......
As respondents’ science literacy scores increased, their concern with climate change decreased," the paper, which was funded by the National Science Foundation, notes. 
But some of the 16 scientists who signed a letter this January titled "No Need to Panic About Global Warming" disagree.
Dr. Richard Lindzen, Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at MIT, was one skeptical scientist who signed the letter. He said that the finding that skeptics know as much or more about science surprised him "not at all."

UPDATE

Anthony Watts has also a post on this study.....LINK.

German Government May Abandon Green Energy Transition

The German government no longer believes in the green energy transition. Doubts are growing in the ruling coalition government that the ecological project can succeed. 

Will Australia soon see a similar headline:

Australian Government May Abandon Prevaricating PM

The Australian government no longer believes in their prevaricating Prime Minister. If she is deposed before 1st July when her tax on innocent carbon dioxide commences, her well known "There will be no carbon tax under any government that I lead" will be confirmed as the truth!
