I blame George Bush

[Netherlands voters not buying into Gore's global warming scam]
It’s the economy stupid
There is good news for the environment, according to a survey commissioned by de Volkskrant. Well sort of. Once the Dutch election has been held, just over half of the voters want the Netherlands to continue with its aim of reducing CO2 emissions by 30 percent (10 percent more than EU aims).

With an election coming up, you might think that would be good news for a green party such as the Green Left. Not so. Only three percent of voters feel the issue is important enough to determine who they actually vote for.

What’s more, in spite of 40 percent of voters thinking that politicians underestimate the human role played in global warming, they are not prepared to put their money where there mouths are. Only 22 percent of voters say they think the environment should be given priority over other matters.
