Are you hot, as in, feeling warm? Then according to research out of the University of Chicago and University of California Berkley you may be more likely to believe in global warming. The study, published last month in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, found that if people feel warmer, like sitting in a hot room, they’re more likely to believe in the climactic change. They found this out by placing people answering the questionnaires in cubicles, some of which were overheated. The researchers say that people placed in the hot cubicles may have had “a sharper mental image of what a hot world would be like.”
Hmm… if that’s a solution to get a consensus on climate change — I suggest that everyone go to a sauna immediately.
