    Yes, another Poll - Gutting the Clowns who regularly say Americans "don't care".
    In fact, that's the main 'argument' of at least a few of them.
    Not only a fallacious Argumentum ad Populum, but a wrong/Lying one at that!

    Not only do they care about GW, they care about AGW.
    We see Record Temps and Record numbers of Americans who acknowledge the trend and cause.

    Poll: Record number of Americans believe in man-made climate change

    Poll: Record number of Americans believe in man-made climate change

    A record number of Americans believe that global warming is real and that humans are at least partially responsible, according to a new poll from the University of Michigan's Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy.

    The survey says that 60% of respondents say that global warming is taking place and that human activity is either primarily or partially why temperatures are rising. That passes a previous high of 58%, which was recorded in 2008, 2009 and 2017.

    34% of respondents said that humans were primarily responsible for global warming, while 26% said human activity was partially responsible.

    On the other hand, 12% of respondents said that climate change was caused by natural patterns, with another 12% saying they weren't sure if it is occurring at all. 15% of respondents said the climate is not changing.​

    In addition, the poll found that more Americans believe there is solid evidence of global warming than at any time since 2008. 73% of respondents agreed with the statement.

    There is a stark divide along party lines, with 50% of Republicans saying they believe there is solid evidence of global warming, compared to 90% of Democrats. The divide is the largest since 2008.

    The survey was conducted from April 29 to May 25 among a population of 751 adults. The margin of error is 4 percentage points.

    Of course it is real. The science has been settled for years and it has been fossil fuel companies with their junk science and propaganda arm that has created this denialist movement.

    So, yes it is 73%. It will one day be 98% except for the right-wing nutters who reject all science.

    Soon, and it has to be real soon, there will be real action to curb greenhouse gases. Trump and the denialist movement will be thrown to the dump heap of history where they belong.

    Most Americans won’t spend more more than $1 a month in higher electricity bills to fight global warming, according to a new Associated Press-University of Chicago poll.

    Only 57 percent of Americans would be willing to spend the extra cash to fight global warming, according to the poll, and 39 percent said they’d spend up to $10 a month to stave off warming.

    The polling means that less than 40 percent of Americans are willing to pay for Obama’s Clean Power Plan. The plan, which is intended to slow global warming, is expected to cost a staggering $41 billion annually, which equates to about $10.74 a month for each American.

    How man threads has this OP made on this same very subject?

    So you see for the AGW cult it is about pushing their religious agenda that accepting science.

    But you can see what all the polls are and how they word them here:

    Obviously those polled are unaware that there were five major ice ages. And lo and behold the earth warmed in between....when we weren't around.

    Yep....the only poll that matters, though we didn't need a poll to know Americans might believe but they just dont really care. Only the suckers of the world get giddy over the OP's posted poll results. In life. Words dont mean dick.....only behavior matters. Action.....or in this case, inaction!!!:flirtysmile4:

    Nobody is caring about climate change......waaaaàaay down the peoples priority list. Which means it's not mattering@:fu::funnyface::funnyface:
