Palmer United Party needs to go back to school on carbon facts

It's a bit of worry when the senators holding the balance of power in this country don't understand the carbon cycle and believe half of scientists think global warming isn't real.

When you ask Australians what proportion of climate scientists agree on the reality of human-caused global warming, the average answer is around 58%, despite evidence that the true size of the consensus is 97%.

Australians still think there is a roughly 50/50 debate among climate scientists. This is a huge “consensus gap” between public perception and reality.
