Here’s our obligatory Earth Day post: “A Pew survey in January showed a precipitous 15-point decline in the number of American adults who describe global warming as a ‘top priority’. Meanwhile, a Gallup poll released last month showed a record number of Americans –41 percent — who claimed that the seriousness of global warming is ‘generally exaggerated’. And just last week, a Rasmussen poll had likely voters increasingly skeptical of the idea that global warming is manmade.” |FiveThirtyEight|
