America to world: who cares?

I get The Daily Climate newsletter (via DL) and recommend it to you. A recent newsletter had a juxtaposition of headlines that's just too good to be true:

2012, The Hottest U.S. Year on Record, and Humans are causing climate change,


Three of four Americans say the Earth is warming, and one in three Americans see extreme weather as a sign of biblical end times.*


Bottom Line: One-quarter of Americans deny climate change and one-third say "bring Jesus back to us" -- so that means that 58 percent favor doing nothing to mitigate climate change. It also means that the Americans are not going to be taking any actions based on public opinion.
* There's no debate among academics.
