A majority of peoples around the world – 73 % – want their governments to put action on climate change at the top of the political agenda, a new global public opinion poll suggests. Unfortunately  Americans are not necessarily among them. Only 44% of Americans thought climate change should be a major preoccupation for the Obama administration, the survey co-ordinated by the University of Maryland’s Program on International Policy Attitudes said. The only other two countries unwilling to see their governments make climate change a top focus were Iraq and the Palestinian territories.
