"A scientific report issued Tuesday on the effects of climate change in the United States concluded, 'Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present.' Still, America lags the rest of the world in acknowledging and addressing climate change, and few consider it among the most pressing problems facing the country.

Many of us who were raised in the United States see our country as the most progressive country on the planet...We see the United States as THE country to solve world issues. It's sad to see statistics like this, which show how far behind the rest of the world we really are. It seems to me that the US is very ideological, and people in this country have difficulties in changing their beliefs once they create them. It's like we are more scared of being wrong than we are of lacking factual information!

Also, I wonder where China would be on this scale? Great post, thanks for sharing!

My guess is China is under 20%
