This is the part of the article I found most interesting: “It is very difficult to find an issue that voters place lower on the list than climate change,” Mr. Ayres said. “It vies with gay marriage and campaign finance reform as the least important issue. Most voters care about jobs, economic growth, health care and immigration.”I live in a college town, and when I try to strike up a conversation about our attitudes towards the biosphere, everybody just goes "Whaaaaaat?" I mean everybody, including eco enthusiasts of various kinds. It would kinda seem that evidence of the eco-consciousness of the anthropocene is somewhat lacking, apart from very particular academic circles.
