Last week's video: Climate Science - What You Need to Know https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffjIy...

Scientists overwhelmingly agree that our climate is changing, Earth is getting warmer, sea levels are rising, and it's primarily because of humans putting lots of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Yet 4 in 10 Americans aren't convinced
Here's what psychologists and sociologists have to say about why some people don't believe in climate science.
