    Climate-change foes winning public opinion war


    EAST LANSING, Mich. — As world leaders meet this week and next at a historic climate change summit in Paris, a new study by Michigan State University environmental scientists suggests opponents of climate change appear to be winning the war of words.

    The research, funded by the National Science Foundation, finds that climate-change advocates are largely failing to influence public opinion.

        You should have chosen a more infamous quote:
