This paper studies the consensus in the scientific community regarding human caused climate change, finding that over 97% of climate scientists agree that humans are the cause of current warming trends. However, only about 50% of the US public agrees with the scientists. Education so the population understands the evidence that the Earth is warming is necessary to support global policy to reduce (mitigate) the effects of climate change. This paper, abstract and especially the accompanying short video will make useful tools for classroom education and discussion on both climate change and policy.
