Americans & Climate Change
According to a recent Harris poll, nearly two-thirds of Americans want the next president to take strong action on climate change. Four in 10 polled in the national study agree that if action is not taken to address global warming and climate change, the country's national security will be threatened by global instability. The poll was taken as the National Intelligence Council issued the first-ever National Intelligence Assessment on the link between global climate change and the nation's security. Interestingly, two of three of those with household incomes of $49,999 or less indicate that strong action to address climate change is important.
