NIT – Most Americans, 65%, believe global warming is currently happening or will happen in their lifetimes, but far fewer, 36%, predict it will be a serious threat to their way of life, new polls say.

In recent months and years, weather patterns have seemed to become more violent and erratic, but many more Americans who say their area is experiencing colder winter temperatures or drought attribute these events to normal yearly weather variations rather than climate change.

Gallup said Monday that more than four in 10 Americans say the seriousness of global warming is generally exaggerated, while one in three say it is generally underestimated and about one in four say it is generally correct.

Gallup recently reported that most Americans are more worried about the economy than climate change.

    Political Warming is sure confusing.

    Best solution:

    Pass legislation that “Prohibits ANYONE or ANY GOVERNMENT from TAXING or MAKING ANY MONEY” with regard to mandatory environmental regulations.

    Do this and I believe the problem of Global Warming will be solved.
