American people offer big yawn over 'global warming'

It is perhaps no coincidence that public concern about "global warming" has plunged as more and more dishonest tactics by activists who consider global warming a big threat to humanity have been uncovered.

For years, the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press has compiled a list of issues in a major survey. It asks respondents to specify which issues they consider to be a "top priority" for Congress and the president to address.

Time and again, global warming has ranked dead last on the list of roughly 20 issues, coming in behind even not-very-exciting topics such as global trade.

This year is no exception. Newly released survey results put global warming dead last yet again. In fact, since 2007, "the share of Americans who view dealing with global warming as a top priority has slipped" 13 percentage points, Pew reported.

That reflects well on the American people's embrace of common sense and rejection of environmental alarmism.
