"Dueling Pollsters Add Heat to Torpid Climate Debate"
"It has been the summer of polling discontent, or at least the dog days of disagreement on climate change.
In June, a Stanford University professor got into a spat on public opinion via The New York Times' op-ed page with Gallup and the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. Now the same professor is releasing a new poll of public attitudes on global warming and criticizing seemingly different conclusions out last week from Rasmussen Reports.
The results come at a time when federal climate legislation is stalled on Capitol Hill and many congressional lawmakers say that their constituents do not rank the issue highly."Source: ClimateWire, 08/11/2010
