Pew Research polls have found that members of the American Association for the Advancement of the Sciences and US adults in general often widely differ in their beliefs about hot-topic science and health questions. Nearly all AAAS scientists believe in evolution, compared to 65% of the American population. Another massive disparity between scientists and the population revolves around the issue of climate change. Where the general citizenry is split down the middle, nearly 9 in 10 scientists agree that climate change is a manmade phenomena.
