In some rare good news, 7 out of 10 Americans believe that global warming exists and that they can do something about it, according to a recent poll conducted by Yale University. Better yet, most Americans support regulations beyond Kyoto and want to see higher energy efficiency standards, even if it costs them more money.
The only caveat is that nearly half in the poll still think that there is a sharp divide in the scientific community over whether global warming is real. The scientific community decided long ago that global warming was a reality. The only few holdouts are likely funded by the oil industry.
