Apparently, some people think the answer to the climate science literacy item "Climate scientists believe that if the North Pole icecap melted as a result of human-caused global warming, global sea levels would rise" is "true" & not "false."
But here's another thing: it just doesn't matter.
The "Ordinary Climate Science Intelligence" assessment was designed to test the hypothesis that the question "do you believe in human-caused climate change?" measures something different from climate-science knowledge questions that are worded to avoid threatening survey respondents' cultural identities.
The evidence that would support that hypothesis would be the lack of any meaningful correlation between responses to the "knowledge" questions & (a) measures of political identity & (b) measures of "belief in climate change."
Go ahead & change the scoring on "North Pole." Or on any other item. Or all of them!
That conclusion won't change.
