Opinion Cools on Global Warming

Looks like Science Daily is trying to muscle in on my AGW puns...
"Public concern about global warming has dropped sharply since the fall of 2008"
Well, duh. Anyone who has seen "The Day after Tomorrow" knows that electing Republicans causing global warming. After electing Obama, the problem is solved. Time to move on to other important stuff.
"Finally, Americans who believe that most scientists think global warming is happening decreased 13 points, to 34 percent, while 40 percent of the public now believes there is a lot of disagreement among scientists over whether global warming is happening or not."
To which the AGW camp replies:
"The scientific evidence is clear that climate change is real, human-caused and a serious threat to communities across America. The erosion in both public concern and public trust about global warming should be a clarion call for people and organizations trying to educate the public about this important issue."
Well, repeating a mantra is not education. Ads saying we need to do our part about it is not education.
