World Moves on While Governor Brown Frets About Climate Change

Governor Brown: “Climate change is much bigger than partisan politics.” During the first Republican primary . . . Brown sent an open letter to the candidates requesting an answer to only one question: “What is your plan to deal with the threat of climate change?” Huffington Post 

Reality: A new poll has surfaced showing once again the vast majority of Americans don’t rank global warming as the most serious issue facing the country. A YouGov poll of 18,000 people in 17 countries found only 9.2 percent of Americans rank global warming as their biggest concern. Only Saudi Arabians were less concerned about global warming at 5.7 percent. Despite a big PR push by President Barack Obama to tout his administration’s global warming agenda, most Americans have been unconvinced it’s the country’s most pressing issue. A Fox News poll from November found only 3 percent of Americans list global warming as their top concern. —Michael Bastasch, Daily Caller News Foundation, 1 February 2016
