Default Re: UN Plaza: Public Diplomacy Edition

Quote from In Japan: On climate change - polls have consistently shown that the US electorate does not care enough about climate change to rank it highly among decision factors.
I agree that it should be the No. 1 issue because it goes to the very core of our existence. Jim Murphy's comment about how those "without shoes" aren't likely to care much about future planetary conditions probably applies to the US albeit in less stark terms.

The fact that so many Americans are having to address so many immediate concerns right now regarding keeping hearth and home together pushes climate change way down the list. If there was less turmoil in other areas, I do believe that the message might be more readily heard and taken more seriously. At least I would like to think so... Ironically as the diavloggers intimated, addressing those concerns could easily help our economic woes with the development of new technologies here but I fear that the rest of the world has a real head start on us.
