Climate Change - Climate Change survey in America: Only 18% believe it's real, caused by humans, and harmful
Americans are sharply divided in their beliefs about whether climate change is real, according to a new study commissioned by The Nature Conservancy and other leading conservation and climate action groups.

The study — the American Climate Values Survey (ACVS), conducted by the consulting group EcoAmerica — also found that only 18 percent of survey respondents strongly believe that climate change is real, human-caused and harmful. It also found that political party affiliation is the single largest indicator as to whether people see climate change as a threat.
... Your survey also found that only 18 percent of respondents strongly believe that global warming is real, caused by humans and is harmful. Should we be discouraged by these findings? Do they mean that conservation groups have an uphill battle in educating the public about climate change?

Lee Bodner: That 18 percent represents the "base" of a growing movement to fight global warming.

If the current trend continues, pretty soon it will be so cold that even the dumbest amongst us will know Al Gore is a little funny in the head.

If after about 15 years of mass media indoctrination only 18% of Americans have fallen for the AGW ruse, it restores my faith in the intelligence of the average American somewhat. Of course, after 10 years of no warming, one has to ask what's wrong with the 18%. Maybe that's the percentage of Americans whose jobs require belief in AGW, teach in universities, or are in mental institutions.

Let's not give the Warmists too much credit. It is a well known fact that roughly 3% of the population is classified as "unemployable" meaning they are insane, retarded, and severly disable or mentally incapacitated. Since this 3% may be skewing the data, one must assume that even after 10 plus years of NBC and CBS news bleating the mantra 7 nights a week, and Al Gore leaving jet contrails around the world to promote not burning fossil fuels, still only maybe 15% of the population is sold on this scam, some of whom may be retarded.

Yeah Global Warming Activism!! Good thing this ruse was brought to you by the same people who thought up "Participation" trophies. Maybe we can at least give Brian Williams and Ted Koppel a nice participation trophy.

"Thanks for trying and failing"

I think that 100% of those who believe the fairy tale work for the mass media.
