Make up your mind

New Pew Research Center survey shows Americans are less hot under the collar about global warming - much less.

In a recent Pew poll, 57 percent of respondents said there is "solid evidence" the average temperature on Eargh is getting warmer. In April 2008, 71 percent said that and in 2006 and 2007, that opinion hit 77 percent.

What gives? Is solid not solid? Is squishy the new solid?

Pew opines the sucking sound of the economy is to blame. The center cites drops of about 10 percent in people saying immigration, health care and crime are top priorities for the president and Congress, as signs people are more focused on jobs and pay checks.

Pew says even Gallup and Fox News have seen similar results in polls.

What could this sort of sentiment do to the cap-and-trade train that is just aching to be fueled up with government dollars to get it out of the station?
