Daily Roundup: October 22, 2009

Disbelief: The number of Americans who believe in human-caused climate change is at its lowest point in three years; a Pew poll found that only 57 percent currently do. In 2006, 77 percent did. Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Death Suggestion: Rush Limbaugh said that if the award-winning New York Times eco-reporter Andrew Revkin is so worried about humans’ impact on the planet, he should kill himself. Limbaugh also compared enviros to terrorists. NPR and Media Matters

Plane it Down: The E.U. plans to lower carbon dioxide emissions from airplanes and ships by 10 and 20 percent respectively by 2020. ENN

Windy Work:
The Southern California city of Palmdale making parking lots work double time: Their second job is to act as wind-power plants. Los Angeles Times

Magic Number:
