We’ll either choose one of two paths: one that will reverse global warming while creating a new, more prosperous economy; or one that will make us increasingly dependent on a dwindling supply of dirty sources of fuel.

 Eco-America has released a major new report on American attitudes toward climate change, and Eco-America Executive Director Lee Bodner (quoted above) provides an overview in this interview on the Nature conservancy site.

Three quick findings:

1. The divide remains large between Democrats (90 per cent) and Republicans (54 per cent) when responding to whether they are “convinced that global warming is happening.”

2. 95 per cent of Americans (including those who are skeptical of climate change) believe action is warranted to reduce pollution.

3. 92 per cent believe the U.S. should be leading the world this pollution-reduction campaign.
