Gallup Poll: Americans' Global Warming Concerns Continue to DropPosted by Committee Staff on March 11, 2010
A new Gallup survey released today shows that Americans are becoming increasingly skeptical about global warming. 48% of Americans now say the seriousness of global warming is "generally exaggerated." That result is the highest ever recorded by Gallup; a seven point rise in last the last year and a 17-point jump since they began asking the question in 1998. Similarly, two-thirds of Americans say global warming will not affect them in their lifetimes.
