Most Still Aren’t Willing to Spend Big to Fight Global Warming

Most voters continue to worry about global warming AKA climate change but not enough to part with their hard-earned money to do something about it.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the federal government does too little to fight global warming. Just 16% think it does too much, while 23% consider the level of government action about right. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
