Poll indicates Brits harbor doubts on climate change
U.S. conservatives aren’t the only ones who are easily duped. When 1,039 Brits were asked “To what extent do you agree or disagree that … Many scientific experts still question if humans are contributing to climate change,” a remarkable 60 percent agreed whereas only 22 percent disagreed.
Congrats to the British deniers out there — yes, even you TVMOB, who apparently qualifies as a scientific expert in the U.K. because he wears a Nobel prize pin made of gold recovered from a physics experiment presented to him by the Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Rochester, New York.
The poll also asked for responses to “I sometimes think climate change might not be as bad as people say.” Some 42 percent agreed while 41 percent disagreed. I am going to (optimistically) ascribe that less to the U.K. airing of the The Great Global Warming Swindle than to the fact that this statement is true when it comes to one particular famous British person.
