"News Analysis: Where Did Global Warming Go?"
"In 2008, both the Democratic and Republican candidates for president, Barack Obama and John McCain, warned about man-made global warming and supported legislation to curb emissions.

But two years later, now that nearly every other nation accepts climate change as a pressing problem, America has turned agnostic on the issue."
