Poor dumb Americans don't understand what we're doing to mother Earth. Please.

As a matter of fact, it is being brought up everywhere as a subject. Certainly amongst all but the most staunch opponents.
Are you gonna blame me for something a swedish journalist said? I never uttered my own opinion, but there's sure been a discussion in Sweden about "Americans" and global warming. I'm glad that there obviously has been a discussion in America too.

Couldn't disagree more. If we all do our part, we'll be strong together. Många bäckar små, like we say in Sweden.

Steve, I'm glad to hear you're well. I'm very sorry for your daughter's situation...
Of course we're all responsible for the global warming and such. Though, this topic is huge in Sweden - you don't go a day without hearing about the North Pole, or South Pole, or global warming, or carbondioxide, etc.... I have no idea wether the topic is as big in the USA as it is here. There was not a word about it in this presidential election as far as I know. But playing the blame game wasn't my intention at all....
