[I blame American right-wingers]: New Zealand Survey Shows Climate Change Ranks Lowest Among Issues And Concerns About Its Costs Have Risen
Overall, New Zealanders rank climate change at the bottom of their list of major issues and more people are growing concerned about the costs involved in tackling it, a new survey shows.

The telephone poll of 500 people, conducted by UMR Research on behalf of the Greenhouse Policy Coalition, shows climate change rated bottom in order of importance to people out of a list of 10 common issues, a drop from eighth out of nine issues in the same survey last year. The proportion of people agreeing that climate change is a serious issue fell from 42.6% last year to 36.3%.
