PewResearchCenter: 28% - Global Warming Not So Hot
Posted by Committee Staff on February 23, 2010
Most Americans do not believe dealing with global warming should be high on President Obama and Congress' agenda, placing it at the bottom of a list of policy concerns. Just 28% say it should be a "top priority," the lowest measure for any issue tested in the survey. And 20% said dealing with global warming is "not too important" while 14% said nothing should be done at all -- both highs in the survey. Since 2007, when global warming was first included on the priorities list, it has ranked near the bottom; but in 2007, 38% considered it a top priority. The low level of concern is driven by Republican indifference: Just 11% consider global warming a top priority, compared with 43% of Democrats and 25% of independents. Protecting the environment fares somewhat better, as 44% say it should be a top priority in 2010. Read more
