ABSTRACT
The article reports on the study of the researchers from Texas A&M University regarding the attitudes of the Americans on global warming. It reveals that people who are informed about its risks and causes are less alarmed it than the people who are less knowledgeable on it. These people trust the ability of the scientific community to devise solutions such as development of emission-less vehicles.

    Over the last 100 years the average temperature on the Earth has risen approximately 1Fahrenheit (F), increasing at a rate twice as fast as has been noted for any period in the last 1,000 years. The Arctic ice cap is shrinking, glaciers are melting, and the Arctic permafrost is thawing. There is...

    Global environmental change (GEC) is a significant concern. However, forecasting the outcomes of this change for species and ecosystems remains a major challenge. In particular, predicting specific changes in systems where initial conditions, instabilities, and model errors have large impacts on...
