Pew Poll: GOP Divided on Climate Change


A new Pew Research Center poll shows a sharp partisan divide on climate change, according to The Hill.

The poll shows that Republicans who identify with the tea party movement are more skeptical about global warming than other memebers of the GOP.

“Republicans who agree with the tea party movement are much more likely than other Republicans to say that there is no solid evidence that the earth’s temperature has been rising,” according to Pew.

“Among Republican registered voters who agree with the tea party, 70 percent do not think there is solid evidence that the average temperature on earth is warming. By comparison, only 38 percent of Republican voters who disagree with the tea party or who have never heard of the movement express this view. Half (50 percent) of tea party Republican voters also say global warming is not a problem at all; 24 percent say it is not too serious, and just 8 percent think it is a problem that requires immediate government action,” Pew adds in a summary of its findings.

Environmentalist and former Vice President Al Gore attacked the global warming skepticism within the tea party movement, linking it to fossil fuel industry-backed groups that support the movement.
