“Recognition by the US population of the dangers of climate change has grown tremendously, and public opinion strongly favors action to address the dangers. Americans who think global warming is happening outnumber those who think it is not happening by a ratio of nearly 5 to 1—74% versus 15%. Over 62% say they feel a personal sense of responsibility to help reduce global warming.“
