The Public Does Understand Emma

It is people like you that have lost all your ability to reason and think for yourself in a logical way. Your research(PDF) shows(HTML) that 71% of the people polled still have some common sense. You seem to find that offensive...

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.

"We need to make it clear that there is nothing natural about the significant rise in both carbon emissions and global temperatures since the industrial revolution.

"Pocket Issue’s brief is to help people to understand the facts, encouraging them to click through to a carbon counter as a result.

"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."

Heaven forbid that anyone should actually think for themselves. The scientific debate is not over. It has only just begun. Better late than never I suppose. As far as "buying into" goes... we will not have a choice. We the little people will foot the bill as always whether we like it or not. When it is proven that man made global warming is a farce, will we get our money back? Ya thats what I thought.
