A new Rasmussen Report finds:
"With hurricane season in full swing, Americans have mixed views on whether global warming is behind extreme weather conditions.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 41% of American Adults believe global warming is creating climate changes that lead to more extreme weather events. Forty-three percent (43%) disagree with that assessment, while 16% are not sure.
The latest findings show little change from January of last year. However, the number of Americans who feel global warming is linked to extreme weather is down 14 points from early June 2008 when 55% felt that way.
Still, separate polling shows that 59% say global warming it at least a somewhat serious problem. Just 37% do not think climate change is a serious issue. These findings have remained fairly consistent for years now."
