Australia increasingly sceptical about alarmism

According to a new poll from Gallup,

Australians' attitudes about global warming could be a factor later this month in the general election where climate change has emerged as an issue. The percentage of Australians who are aware of climate change and say it results from human activities fell from 52% in June 2008 to 44% in March 2010, while the number attributing it to natural causes increased 10 percentage points.

Particularly in the light of the people of Australia's interest in the subject,
Awareness of climate change in Australia remains among the highest measured in the world -- 97% say they know "a great deal" (24%) or "something" (73%) about the issue.
More good news for Mr Abbott I see.
