More think global warming exaggerated

In a Gallup poll conducted March 5-8, 2009, a record-high 41% of Americans in the US now say news reporting exaggerates global warming. This represents the highest level of public skepticism about mainstream reporting on global warming seen in more than a decade of Gallup polling on the subject. http://www.gallup.com/poll/116590/Increased-Number-Think-Global-Warming-Exaggerated.aspx

Not only that, when asked to rank their concern about eight specific environmental issues, not only did global warming rank last on the basis of the total percentage concerned, but it is the only issue for which public concern dropped significantly in the past year.

Also, only 38% of Americans, similar to the 40% found in 2008, believe it will pose "a serious threat" to themselves or their own way of life.

Too bad the same can't be said of government intervention in the economy to 'do something' global warming.
