BETTER SCRATCH THE POLL ABOUT BELIEF IN DARWINISM:

Science Museum's climate change poll backfires (David Barrett, 25 Oct 2009, Daily Telegraph)

A poll by the Science Museum designed to convince the nation of the perils posed by climate change has backfired after being hijacked by sceptics.

The museum’s Prove It! website, which is designed to influence politicians at the Copenhagen climate summit in December, allows members of the public to pledge their support, or lack of it, to the environmentalist cause. [...]

By Saturday, 2,385 people who took the poll said “count me out” compared to just 415 who said “count me in”, after being asked whether they agreed with the statement: “I’ve seen the evidence. And I want the government to prove they’re serious about climate change by negotiating a strong, effective, fair deal at Copenhagen.”
