Debate over global warming causes heat

Conservative white males are more likely than other Americans to question the validity of climate change science, according to a study by sociologists Aaron McCright, Michigan State University, and Riley Dunlop, University of Oklahoma. The study, entitled “Cool dudes: The denial of climate change among conservative white males in the United States,” was printed in the October 2011 issue of Global Environmental Change. (The title “cool dudes” is a facetious reference to conservative icons Rush Limbaugh, John Boehner, James Inhofe and George Will.)
