Are you taking Climate Change seriously?

The Age has an in depth article on climate change and how it is already affecting a number of fragile species in Australia such as this frog that lives on the highest peaks of Queensland's wet tropical rainforests.

In the side panel of their article there is an interesting reader's poll on global warming. These were the results when I voted:

How seriously do you take global warming?

72% - Extremely - it's too late to avoid problems
10% - It's a moderate threat
4% - I think it's important but manageable
13% - Overblown - it's not a huge threat

Total Votes: 304

Of course all this says is that the majority of people that take the time to read about think its a problem. But I guess they are also the best informed. So what do you reckon?
