A new study provides an interesting public opinion comparison between Canada and the U.S. Of the 11-page report, Tim Scolnick at Desmogblog says

perhaps the most surprising feature is that in Canada, in spite of the fact that the Conservative Party has held power for just over five years, all the while opposing any action to cap carbon emissions, 70% of the population still feels that their provincial government should take immediate action.

Huh? I take that to also mean that 70% of Canada must not feel all that strongly about climate change, since the ruling Conservative Party has not paid a price at the poll for taking a stance diametrically opposite to the majority of the populace.
