Public backs action on global warming - but with cost concerns and muted urgency
Public awareness of global warming is up and support for action is broad, with eight in 10 Americans saying the federal government should try to achieve the same deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions called for in the international treaty rejected by Donald Trump . Sixty-one percent in a new national survey also say the federal government should be doing "a great deal" or "a lot" about global warming, up 8 points since 2015 to the most since 2009.

Perhaps we the people are in a better position to "save the planet" than the government. After all, 80% of the people (all of us who believe carbon dioxide is bad) could solve this "problem" if we believers would simply do what we want the non-believers to do ...stop using fossil fuels.
After all these years of buying new pick-ups and SUVs and jetting all over the world to exotic vacation destinations... Perhaps it is time 'walk the talk'.
