Politics vs. Science on Climate Change

According to a Pew Research Center survey of more than 1,500 U.S. adults, Democrats with high science knowledge are especially likely to believe the Earth is warming due to human activity and to trust climate scientists' information about the causes of climate change. Republicans with high science knowledge are no more or less likely to hold these beliefs.

A Pew Research Center Survey found that people's political orientations tend to influence how knowledge about science affects their judgments and beliefs on climate matters and their trust in climate scientists. Do you agree that someone’s political orientation can have a greater influence on their view of climate change than having a high degree of scientific knowledge?
