By the Numbers

Americans aren’t sold on AGW:

Just one-out-of-three voters (34%) now believe global warming is caused by human activity, the lowest finding yet in Rasmussen Reports national surveying. However, a plurality (48%) of the Political Class believes humans are to blame.

Forty-eight percent (48%) of all likely voters attribute climate change to long-term planetary trends, while seven percent (7%) blame some other reason. Eleven percent (11%) aren’t sure.

Yet another reason why the White House doesn’t want to waste a perfectly good emergency — it lets them get away with things which otherwise might get a little more scrutiny.
