Looks like Al Gore and the other climate change fanatics are losing the battle:

Just one-out-of-three voters (34%) now believe global warming is caused by human activity, the lowest finding yet in Rasmussen Reports national surveying. However, a plurality (48%) of the Political Class believes humans are to blame.

Forty-eight percent (48%) of all likely voters attribute climate change to long-term planetary trends, while seven percent (7%) blame some other reason. Eleven percent (11%) aren’t sure.

These numbers reflect a reversal from a year ago when 47% blamed human activity while 34% said long-term planetary trends.

Cry “wolf” too long and people start to tune you out. Personally, I have trouble believing that human activity on the planet doesn’t have some impact on the weather, although I think the doomsayers grossly exaggerate the problem.
