The polarizing impact of science literacy and numeracy on perceived climate change risks published May 27, 2012 in Nature Climate Change is receiving attention by Fox News and other conservatives this morning. The claim is that the work debunks that idea that climate change deniers are anti-science. Actually, there is a very disturbing figure in the supplemental of the study. Only 45% of the respondents knew the earth takes a full year to "go around" the sun. Twenty-eight percent thought the sun went around the earth. Those are disturbing numbers.
