Opinion Survey Regarding Climate Change

with 13 comments

Scientists want help with an opinion survey regarding climate change

Please consider taking this internet-based survey on climate science and associated issues.   The survey has been approved by the author’s University’s ethics committee and carries no risks for participants. Completion should take less than 10 minutes and all data will be analyzed anonymously and without monitoring or identifying individual responses.

  1. Scott, I began to fill this out but then stopped. Meaning no offense, in my (as usual heretical) opinion this is a simplistic and highly biased “survey” best ignored by educated people.


    Mandia: Hunt, this type of survey needs to be simplistic and is designed for the general public person who would visit a pro-science blog. I had no input into these questions, BTW.

  3. I had no problem with the survey and sailed through it in a very short time. It covers some of the most important topics in science today and could provide important data to the University. Not sure what Thabo Mbeke would make of it, though.

    Given that it has pretty much all options for answers I can’t see how it can be seen to be biased.

  4. In order to not be biased, some of the questions should have a category for “I don’t know”. It required me to select an answer that I did not agree with because there was no middle ground answer.

  5. This opinion survey reminds me to invite readers to send me their “sea level poster-child” candidates, by which I mean cities which are now facing, or will face in the future, serious problems due to sea level rise.

    I already have a draft list of some 36 cities in 17 countries, compiled from various sources, but this is too many to discuss in my book on sea level rise. Your suggestions will help me reduce this list. What are your favorite sea level poster-children?

    • Following Dr. Peter Ward in The Flooded Earth, I have to go with Venice. He writes that it floods six times as often as it did a few decades ago. There’s an international effort building movable floodgates against the Adriatic, but these are likely to be overwhelmed by the smallest projected sea level rise. Dr. Ward writes, “Venice will drown.”
