I do wish that those taking the polls would distinguish between anthropogenic global warming and what is actually happening, which is primarily natural
(CNSNews.com) – Most of the human race does not see global warming as a serious threat, according to a Gallup poll released last week that surveyed individuals in 111 countries.
Respondents were asked: “How serious of a threat is global warming to you and your family?” They were given the options of anwering: not at all serious, not very serious, somewhat serious or very serious.
Worldwide, only 42 percent told Gallup they believed global warming was either a “somewhat serious” or “very serious” threat. Gallup did not publish the separate percentages for each answer.
Now, one thing CNS News failed to say is that concern is up 1% since the 2007-2008 survey, primarily due to much higher belief in Latin America and Sub-Sahara Africa. But, Western Europe and the United States are both down 10%. Other changes shown
Interestingly, the poll also asked how much they knew about the issue, and, for the most part, people knew more, which mostly led to people being concerned less about this issue. Except in the 3rd World shit holes, er, developing nations and 2nd world countries, who see AGW as a means to extract money from 1st world nations.
Am I concerned with “climate change”? A little. I’m referring to natural climate change, of course. Changes in climate, which encompasses temperature, precipitation, wind, etc, is always a concern, because it can affect the weather. But, I’m not going to lose sleep over it. Perhaps now we can turn our attention back to real environmental issues?
