(CNSNews.com) - Most of the human race does not see global warming as a serious threat, according to a Gallup poll released last week that surveyed individuals in 111 countries.
Respondents were asked: "How serious of a threat is global warming to you and your family?" They were given the options of anwering: not at all serious, not very serious, somewhat serious or very serious.
Worldwide, only 42 percent told Gallup they believed global warming was either a "somewhat serious" or "very serious" threat. Gallup did not publish the separate percentages for each answer.
In the United States, 53 percent said they believed global warming was a "somewhat serious" or "very serious" threat to themselves and their families. That was down from 63 percent in polling that Gallup did on the question in the United States in 2007 and 2008.
