Depressing Fact of the Day

Tuesday, April 22, 2008
From the Gallup Poll:

"Do you think that global warming will pose a serious threat to you or your way of life in your lifetime?"

Yes No
2008 40% 58%
2006 35% 62%
2002 33% 65%
2001 31% 66%
1997 25% 69%

Well, the trend is in the right direction, but at this rate we'll be under water until there's the political will to do something.

On a happier note, today is the Pennsylvania primary. That is good news, right?

  • I wonder how this compares to European nations.

  • You know, I don't have any real information, but if the actual government policies are any indication, Europeans are a lot more concerned about global warming than we are.
