According to a survey by Associated Press-GfK, 78% of Americans believe that temperatures are rising and 80% say global warming will be a serious problem for the United States if nothing is done about it. Even among Americans "who trust scientists only a little or not at all," 61% now say temperatures have been rising over the past 100 years, a substantial increase from 2009, when the poll found 47% said the same.
