Global warming's 6 Americas: Which are you?
Help this blogger with a school project by taking a short survey that examines how media consumers feel about global warming.

• Alarmed: 13 percent
• Concerned: 26 percent
• Cautious: 29 percent
• Disengaged: 6 percent
• Doubtful: 15 percent
• Dismissive: 10 percent
The six Americas are well-named, but if you want to learn more, you can read about each group in Yale's latest report (PDF
). This video does a good job of describing the project.
I have been back in college for the last two years, pursuing dual degrees in computer science and environmental science, and I'm doing a group project for my environmental communication class in which I'm examining how green media consumers fall into the six Americas. I need your help.
I will be compiling the results of this survey into a final report later this month that I will publish here on MNN.
