Global Warming Poll: Climate Change A 'Serious Problem' To 68% Of Americans

 By Alana Horowitz Posted: 11/09/2012 9:08 pm EST Updated: 11/10/2012 10:29 am EST


68% of Americans see climate change as a "serious problem," according to a poll released on Friday.

The poll was conducted by Rasmussen on Monday, the day before the U.S. presidential election.

Of the 1,000 likely voters surveyed, 68% said they thought climate change is a somewhat serious or very serious problem. 30% of respondents said it was not a serious problem.

The poll marks a huge shift for Americans. In 2009, a Rasmussen poll showed that only 46% of Americans thought climate change was a serious issue. In 2010, Gallup reported that 48% of Americans thought that the seriousness of global warming was exaggerated.

Friday's poll reflects one released in July by the Washington Post in which 60% of Americans surveyed said they believed climate change was real.

According to Rasmussen, 41% of those who believe in climate change think it's because of human activity. 38% believe global warming is caused by planetary trends.

It's not just American voters that are becoming more convinced that climate change is a real problem. Some Republican politicians are also growing concerned. Earlier this year, New Jersey Governor and once-rumored VP candidate Chris Christie admitted that "climate change is real" and "impacting our state."

One possible factor as to why people's beliefs are changing? The recent extreme weather in the United States. Between Hurricane Sandy, record high temperatures and wildfires across the nation, many people are seeing a connection between the changing weather and the climate.

As New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg put it, "Hurricane Sandy provided a wake-up call about the impacts of climate change. Recent extreme weather and climate events make clear that ignoring climate change will be costly in human, environmental, and economic terms for the United States and the world."

No need to worry! A hotter planet is a natural occurrence. In fact, when Earth was a molten mass, atmospheric temperatures were well above 400 degrees. So relax, and keep burning fossil fuels.

Sincerely,

There was a poll done in Ohio a while back that showed that 21% of the respondents thought Romney got Bin Ladin (15% R & 6% D) So if you do not mind I will put my bet on the scientists. Or even if you do mind!

What if the climate is changing, ocean levels are rising and man-made carbon emissions have nothing to do with it?

It's inevitable, whether it's in 5000 years, or a million years, we're going away.

These are probably the same people who elected Obama.  There is no global warming and climate change is cyclical.  Of course that's your public education system for you.
