I don't quite get the point of the survey. There have always been gaps between scientists and the general public and always will be just as there are gaps between any sub group and the whole and ALWAYS will be.
It's an ad populum argument, and appeal to authority in survey form. Rather than waist time trying to construct a valid argument just state a majority of experts believe different than you. You should change to match these experts. Useful of backing up bad arguments, and to inform politicians how to pander to the largest group.
