Gap between public and scientists
WASHINGTON- Scientists and the public in the U.S. are miles apart on issues about science. Almost all the scientists polled say its a problem we don't know what they are talking about.
The researchers say they are far less worried about genetically modified food, pesticide use, and nuclear power than the public. In eight of the 13 science-oriented issues, there's a 20-percentage point or larger difference separating the public and scientists' opinions.
The poll was done by the Pew Research Center. It also shows the largest general science organization is more certain that global warming is caused by man, evolution is real and overpopulation is a danger.
