Environmental Consequences of global warming
• Few Americans have thought much about the health consequences of global warming. Asked how often, if ever, before taking this survey they had thought about how global warming might affect people’s health, seven in 10 said they had given the issue little or no thought. Only one in 10 said they had given the issue a “great deal” of thought and only about two in 10 (22%) said they had thought about it a “moderate amount.”
• Few Americans are aware of any current health consequences of global warming. When asked “In your view, what health problems related to global warming are Americans experiencing, if any?” a majority either didn’t answer the question (43%) – which likely indicates they didn’t have an answer – or answered that they “don’t know” (14%). Only one in four (27%) named at least one health problem related to global warming, and 10% answered, incorrectly, that there are no health problems associated with global warming.
• Moreover, with the exception of respiratory problems including asthma and other lung diseases (14%) and illness, injury, and death caused by extreme weather (6%), fewer than 5% of Americans identified any of the other health consequences of global warming.
• When asked “Do you think some groups or types of Americans are more likely than other Americans to experience health problems related to global warming?” only one in three Americans (33%) answered, correctly, that some groups of Americans are more likely than others to have their health harmed by global warming; most survey participants are either “not sure” (43%) or said no group is at higher risk (23%).
• Only one in three Americans (31%) thinks global warming is currently harming the health of people in the U.S. a “great deal” or a “moderate amount, ” while one in six thinks their own health (17%) or the health of others in their household (17%) is being harmed to that degree.
• Four in ten Americans (39%) think global warming will harm the health of people in the U.S. a “moderate amount” or “great deal” over the next five to 10 years, while nearly three in ten think their own health (27%) or the health of others in their household (28%) will be harmed over this time period.

There is no global warming! From what I've heard, any all evidence suggesting global warming is fake or exaggerated. Most scientists actually agree the earth is on a cooling trend. Some evidence wackos use is that they compare pictures of antarctica's ice caps from one point, and then another picture a few months later, and the ice caps are actually smaller. Why? The ice caps melt every year, and then they are replenished later on that year. It's a cycle. They skew the evidence, showing only what they want to make it seem that global warming is real. They claim that the earth's temperat…
