Public still expects action on global warming

Despite efforts by Big Energy to use the economic crisis to push global warming off the agenda, the public is still expecting governments to take action. 

Gloomy economic forecasts fail to curb Green enthusiasm

Earlier this month, a green coalition released the results of a poll that found 83 per cent of 1,000 respondents agreed that Canada should commit to "strong action on global warming without waiting for other countries."
As well, two thirds of respondents disagreed when asked if "governments in Canada should cut back on efforts to tackle global warming because of the current economic crisis."...

Graham Saul, executive director of Climate Action Network Canada, says Canadians no longer believe there has to be a trade-off between the economy and the environment.
