10. Something is wrong with "political will" when even after dropping 10 points, two thirds

of the American People say there is solid evidence the earth is getting warmer and our nation's leadership not to mention the "fourth estate" barely broach the subject much less take action!

Where to get the money? Rothkopf proposed shifting funds from post-Sept. 11 bureaucratic leviathans such as the Department of Homeland Security, which he alleges is shot through with waste. In truth, what’s lacking in America’s approach to climate change is not the resources to act but the political will to do so. A Pew Research Center poll conducted in October found that two-thirds of Americans say there is “solid evidence” the earth is getting warmer. That’s down 10 points since 2006. Among Republicans, more than half say it’s either not a serious problem or not a problem at all.

That also brings up the question as to what did they do when it was up 10 points and three quarters of the American People believed it!?

How much support does this critical issue require before the corporate media stay with it, stick with it, and relentlessly cover the damn thing until either the politicians grow the balls/ovaries necessary to pass major policies taking us off our current mass suicidal path to perdition or until opposing pretenders are voted out of office!?

Thanks for the thread, highplainsdem.
