The article states that viewpoints on global warming stayed about the same in 2017 and 2018, and that ⅔ of people are concerned about global warming. It provides some statistics and charts showing what people are most concerned about with global warming. As shown in a chart, younger people tend to care more about stopping global warming than older people. The chart also describes how political parties, level of education, genders, and races could also come into play.

This article continues to be relevant today, as the world keeps heating up. With ice caps and glaciers melting every second, and animals losing their environments due to a hotter climate, global warming is an important topic that may continue to affect our world for a long time.

President Roosevelt’s “Day of Infamy” speech addresses the unprovoked attack on Pearl Harbor by Japan. Roosevelt discusses how the United States was at peace with Japan and was talking with Japan’s government about how to continue the peace in the Pacific.
