Poll finds many Britons believe global warming myths

The Observer has been polling people about climate change.

The striking results of an Observer /ICM poll show that people are starting to realise that flying across Europe, often for less than £20, is damaging the environment.

The poll also shows that more than three-quarters of the population believe climate change is taking place and that humanity is to blame. A total of 58 per cent said they thought climate change now posed a significant threat.

Meanwhile in the US:

An American Cancer Society survey finds up to half of Americans mistakenly believe surgery can spread cancer, and more than one in four thinks a cure for cancer already exists but is being held back by a profit-driven industry.

What a lot of silly things people believe!
