It is interesting to see that the motivated reasoning that leads to ignoring the massive evidence that the climate is being changed by humans transcends even religion. I suppose that is partially due to the general trend for religion to be less important in people’s lives. In a way, it points to climate change denial as being like a religion in itself in that it needs to be taken on faith.

 

A solid majority of U.S. Catholics believe that Earth is warming. But climate change is a highly politicized issue that sharply divides American Catholics, like the U.S. public as a whole, mainly along political party lines.
