Letter: Most Americans accept climate change is happening
Recently, there has been a surge of letter writers naysaying anything that comes to their Trumpian minds about climate change.
It really makes no difference as 70% of Americans now accept that climate change is happening, outnumbering those who don’t by a 5 to 1 ratio, according to a new survey by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. If you are interested, you can Google that.

More than half of those surveyed, 58 percent, said they also understand global warming is caused mostly by human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels.
Even as President Trump has cast doubt on climate change, most Americans have rejected his position. Record numbers of Americans describe climate change as a real and present danger. Nearly a quarter of the country says they already see its effects in their day-to-day life.
