Gallup: ‘Global warming’ ranks at bottom of Americans’ ENVIRONMENTAL concerns – Concern falls to 1989 levels

-

So far in 2015, Americans are less worried about global warming than they were just last year when 34 percent said they worried about warming a “great deal.” Gallup’s poll comes after a CNN poll from January found that 57 percent of Americans don’t see global warming as a threat to their lives.

“Americans express greater concern over more proximate threats — including pollution of drinking water, as well as pollution of rivers, lakes and reservoirs, and air pollution — than they do about longer-term threats such as global warming, the loss of rainforests, and plant and animal extinction,” Jones adds.

Americans even seem to be less worried about losing the rainforests than they were in 1989. Worries about animal extinctions have fallen 7 percent since 2000, Gallup notes.
