Silver lining to Gallup’s global warming poll?

Gallup out with a new poll on American attitudes about global warming.

Although a majority of Americans believe the seriousness of global warming is either correctly portrayed in the news or underestimated, a record-high 41% now say it is exaggerated.

But the kids are alright:

The views of 18- to 29-year-olds, the age group generally most concerned about global warming and most likely to say the problem is underestimated, didn’t change.

Deniers and professional skeptics take a toll

But, I don’t think we really have time to wait 20 years till the 18-29’s are in charge of policy, now do we.
