It appears Gore still has an uphill battle in convincing the population his chicken little theory of man-caused global warning is fact.
In an online survey by green leaning Pocket Issues, publisher Emma Hardcastle must be beside herself with frustration that the propaganda machines dutiful efforts aren't yielding the desired results.... especially in light of the fact that it was her own organization that conducted the survey.
ALMOST three quarters of people believe global warming is a 'natural occurrence' and not a result of carbon emissions, a survey claimed today.This goes against the views of the vast majority of scientists who
believe the rise in the earth's temperatures is due to pollution.
The online study which polled nearly 4000 votes found that a staggering 71 percent of people think that the rise in air temperature happens naturally.And 65 percent think that scientists'catastrophic predictions if pollution isn't curbed are 'far fetched'.
Emma Hardcastle, publisher at Pocket Issue which carried out the research, said: "If 71% of people feel that Man has nothing to do with the recent change in our climate then those same people are not going to buy into any movement to reduce their carbon footprint.
That's right, Emma. Al Gore's effectiveness appears more limited to the Hollywood types, eh? But she's not giving up...
"Pocket Issue feel that the poll highlights the need for government and influential bodies to concentrate on getting the public to understand the facts about global warming and ‘why’ rather than ‘how’ they should reduce their carbon footprint."
Oh yes... typical "there oughta be a law" mentality. It's always the job of government. puleeeeze.... Like they're the model of efficiency in anything???
