Climate Change: A Serious Threat?


In Gallup's new environmental audit, 65 percent of adults say global warming is already happening or will happen during their lifetimes. In the poll, however, only 36 percent think it will pose a serious threat to their way of life. Seventeen years ago an identical 65 percent also said it was happening or would do so in their lifetimes. In the 1997 poll, 25 percent said it would pose a serious threat.
