Regarding "Poll: Voters See Global Warming As Problem" (July 17), how odd that when poll after poll from reputable polling organizations like Gallup show that global warming is low on the priority list of American voters (see, for example, http://www.galluppoll.com/content/?ci=22291), the Natural Resources Defense Council purports to have found just the opposite in its own private poll. Hmmm … whom should we believe to be a more objective, reputable source on environmental opinion polls--Gallup, or an environmental activist group?
