I blame the DNCC or DCCC corporate part of the Democratic party since that started veering the Democratic party in to being a corporate group with a "Centrist" mentality. (ie: Republican-lite or what some describe corporate/old guard Republicans that aren't Tea Party types).

Yep. The pollution such as the noticeable ones (air or land pollution) were easily visible and talked about during 1960s and throughout 1970s and fortunately progress had been made over the years in some areas.

I don't recall climate change topics on TV or radio until about mid 1990's. The first time I had heard about it was maybe an early 1990s PBS NOVA episode iirc. Between the climate change topic versus the Y2K computer/software bug issue, it seemed Y2K got more attention since that was another noticeable issue compared to climate change.
