Global Warming Polls Dead Last

This Pew Research Center poll isn't very encouraging: concerns about climate change come in dead last in a list of 20 choices. Jobs and other belly-filling activities come first. We humans are just not evolved to consider slow, century-long problems, even if they might be the end of us.

I try to be an optimist but reality keeps getting in the way.

You need to get pragmatic like Dr. Hansen. You need to push energy policy that addresses your GW concerns but will also attract support from those who don't share your GW concern.

LFTR the "green" nuclear.

David, perhaps this is because global warming has never been proven to be made by man. This is a very rational response you have illustrated to us.
