Americans Favor Urgent Tough Action on Global Warming

Richard Worthington, younger brother of Michael Worthington, attended the global climate conference in Copenhagen as Professor of Political Science specialized in science and technology at Pomona College. In this article, Rick is interviewed by BBC Journalist Daniel Grossman for background on two polls, World Wide Views and Pew Center, that were taken to measure public concern about global warming. It is encouraging that when given time to think, US respondents were 90% in favor of urgent, tough action.  Due to the importance of this issue, and given the likelihood that it will intersect with environmental law, not to mention the advantage of regular access to Rick for updates, it will be followed as a special interest topic on this web page.
