ABSTRACT
This article explains that people in the U.S. are not in agreement on their views about global warming. Some people say that most scientists agree that global warming is real and already happening. They say the only scientists who do not believe global warming is happening are paid by big oil, coal, and gasoline companies to find the results that will protect business interests, just like the tobacco industry scientists who said cigarettes do not cause cancer. Other people say that scientists disagree among themselves that global warming is happening. They say there is no real evidence that carbon dioxide emissions from coal, oil and gasoline are causing global warming when that is not the case.
