Twenty-four percent of voters nationwide believe climate change is the most serious threat facing the United States today.

Sixty-two percent disagree and 15 percent are not sure.

A ScottRasmussen.com survey found that younger voters are much more alarmed than their elders. Forty-four percent of voters under 35 believe it’s the nation’s most serious threat. By contrast, only 12 percent of those over 50 see it that way.

Among all voters, 18 percent think the threat of climate change means we must give the federal government sweeping new powers to control the economy.
