Climate Change Study

A few months ago, George Mason University asked members of the American Meteorological Society and National Weather Association to participate is a survey regarding Global Warming/Climate Change. The survey asked detailed questions about how us (Broadcast Meteorologists) felt about the topic. For clarification, broadcast meteorologists are Steve Browne, John Honore, Mike Osterhage and myself.  We at KSAT-12 also participated in this survey with over 500 broadcast meteorologists from different TV stations across the country.  I understand that many feel passionate about whether climate change/global warming exists or not but the following statistics are the results of the survey.

54%believe that global warming is happening

25% believe it is not happening

21% said they don’t know


Assuming global warming is happening:

63 % Believe that its caused by natural changes in the environment

31% Believe that its cause by human activity

6% None of the above


This was an interesting question: #39 Which of the following statements comes closer to your own view:

33% Most scientists think global warming is happening

3% Most scientists think global warming is not happening

62% There is a lot of disagreement among scientists about whether or not global warming is happening

3% Don’t know enough to say

Many more questions were asked. It would be too long to list all the results. If you’re interested in reading the survey click: George Mason University Survey
