Just a little over a third of those polled said that they worry "a great deal" about climate change and global warming.
It's time to put an end to all of the pseudoscience and climate-change denial talk.
Whether Republicans want to admit it or not, not only is climate change very real, but it's also hitting us a lot harder, and a lot sooner, then we once thought.
Just a few years ago, the world's top climate scientists were saying that we had decades to address and solve the climate change crisis.
