Could the US collective head finally be coming out of the sand? We're always a little skeptical of polling numbers, but let's hope this trend continues:

Ninety percent of Democrats, 80 percent of independents and 60 percent of Republicans said immediate action was required to curb the warming of the atmosphere and deal with its effects on the global climateH/T to Josh Zaharoff at the Common Blog.
