Worry about other environmental problems increasing
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a new report this week warning of the existing and potentially severe adverse future impact of climate change, yet most Americans continue to express low levels of concern about the phenomenon. A little more than a third say they worry “a great deal” about climate change or about global warming, putting these concerns at the bottom of a list of eight environmental issues.
Americans seem to worry about Global Warming at the end of an economic boom, just before a bust. In addition they currently seem more concerned about the pollution from Fracking.
