There was a debate at Oxford – and the anti-global warming side won.
The anti-global warming side won – at a university, at a very liberal university, in the midst of one of the most ferociously pro-global warming countries in the world.
The tide has turned.
A survey in February by the BBC found that only 26 percent of Britons believed that “climate change is happening and is now established as largely manmade,” down from 41 percent in November 2009. A poll conducted for the German magazine Der Spiegel found that 42 percent of Germans feared global warming, down from 62 percent four years earlier.
