Americans Just Aren’t That Concerned About Climate Change

New York Times : “Perhaps more than people in any other rich nation, Americans are skeptical that climate change is a dire issue.”  

“Americans rarely cite environmental concerns when asked in polls to name the most important problem facing the country. In the last several years, the economy, jobs, the budget deficit and health care garnered the most mentions, with the environment barely registering.”  

“In the Pew poll, fewer Americans cited climate change as a top threat than cited financial instability, Islamic extremism, Iran’s nuclear program or North Korea’s nuclear program.”
