Climate Change Worries


Gallup has just completed its annual environmental audit and the polling organization found that 31 percent of adults surveyed said they worried a great deal about the quality of the environment, the lowest level since Gallup began asking about the issue in 2001. In the poll, just 24 percent said they worried a great deal about climate change. The top worry in the poll was the economy, with 59 percent. In another question in the survey, 42 percent said global warming was exaggerated in the news.
