Sanity rears its head

Poll: Americans’ belief in global warming cools.

The poll of 1,500 adults by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press found that only 57 percent believe there is strong scientific evidence the Earth has gotten hotter over the past few decades, and as a result, people are viewing the situation as less serious. That's down from 77 percent in 2006, and 71 percent in April 2008.

The AP article goes on to note that the Messiah administration has aggressively pursued actions to curb GHGs, and that "there has been mounting scientific evidence of climate change — from melting ice caps to the world's oceans hitting the highest monthly recorded temperatures this summer."

Really? Even with eleven years of no increase in average global temperature?

But the survey director largely blames the recession for the decrease in poll numbers. Which sure makes pursuing cap and trade legislation verrrrry smart now, doesn't it? Indeed -- let's make it even tougher on Americans' pocket books to stop something over which we really have little control.
