Don't worry, be happy - FOX News Polls - FNC Poll - 11/09/05 FOX News Poll: Global Warming:
NEW YORK — Most Americans believe global warming exists and a majority thinks it is a major problem — if not a crisis, according to a recent FOX News poll. Even so, less than half think they personally can do anything about the problem.

The new national poll finds that 77 percent of Americans believe global warming is happening and, of those, more than twice as many think it is caused by human behavior (46 percent) than by normal climate patterns (17 percent).
So much for the GOP talking points.

Hey, here's an idea... you know all the billions that Exxon, Shell, Mobil et al are gouging reaping quarter by quarter? How about they invest even a fraction of that into say, alternative/renewable energy source research and development.

If Bush wants his plummeting poll numbers to rise, he needs to pull a Nixon in China. Bush's China could be big oil. He could do something good for the country, instead of turning it into a third-world disaster zone by doing something to set our energy policy on a course to a) eliminate our dependency on Middle East oil and b) reduce carbon emissions that contribute to global warming.

I doubt that Dubya is up to the job though. His brain is too busy worrying about the indictment hanging over his head.

Update: Robert F Kennedy Jr. had this to say on his HuffPo blog today:
A Fox News Special “The Heat is On: The Case of Global Warming” airing this Sunday at 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. EST, documents the devastating impacts that global warming is already having on our planet. In one segment of the show, I accompany a Fox News crew to Glacier National Park in Montana where only 27 of the 150 glaciers that graced the park in 1850 remain--and these will be gone within our generation.

The portrayal of global warming in Fox’s piece is both fair and accurate.
Could it be that the tide is turning? That the scales have finally fallen from the eyes of the so-called "Conservative" types?
