"Majority of red-state Americans believe climate change is real, study shows..." I suspect a lot of conservatives went through a similar process to what Rush Limbaugh did over the years that I listened to his show regularly. In 1988 he was adamantly opposed to the idea that climate change of any sort was real. By a few years ago he had come to the point where he admitted it was real, but didn't think that human activity was powerful enough to influence it.
