A growing majority of Americans think global warming is occurring, that it will become a serious problem and that the U.S. government should do something about it, a new Associated Press-GfK poll finds.
Nearly 4 out of 5 Americans now think temperatures are rising and that global warming will be a serious problem for the United States if nothing is done about it, a new Associated Press-GfK poll finds.
The BP rig explosion has caused the greatest oil mess in U.S. history, and eco-activists are puzzled as to why they can't exploit it to advance initiatives such as climate-change legislation. "It's hard to imagine a more useful disaster," wrote two Washington Post environmentalist reporters, noting a squandered opportunity.
"One extreme event after another after another," Leiserowitz said. "People have noticed. ... They're connecting the dots between climate change and this long bout of extreme weather themselves."
