Pew Science Quiz

Excellent post by Raghu K. on the results of the Pew Science quiz. He wrote a longer article in the Michigan Daily.

Among the scientists polled, 87 percent think evolution is true and 84 percent agree that human activity is the cause of global warming, whereas the corresponding numbers among the public are 32 and 49, respectively.

Surveys like the Pew study are useful in alerting us to differences in opinion between scientists and the public, especially on scientific issues. It’s crucial that these divides be bridged to improve the quality of debate on social issues.
I took the Pew Science Quiz and got all the questions right(wipes brow an breathes sign of relief!)

I also got all of them right but I hang my head in shame! These are really softball questions which more than 10% of the population *must* get right.
