It’s a consensus: Most people in the world don’t think global warming is a serious threat

by editor on April 29, 2011

This is not the kind of news Al Gore likes to read as his personal chef is preparing his eggs benedict. No, not at all. Turns out there is a global warming consensus, but it’s not the one Gore was hoping for.

Al Gore personally leads the fight against global warming by using three 30-inch HD monitors instead of four

CNS News offers up the details:

Most of the human race does not see global warming as a serious threat, according to a Gallup poll released last week that surveyed individuals in 111 countries.

Respondents were asked: “How serious of a threat is global warming to you and your family?” They were given the options of anwering: not at all serious, not very serious, somewhat serious or very serious.

Worldwide, only 42 percent told Gallup they believed global warming was either a “somewhat serious” or “very serious” threat.

As highly-trained experts in advanced mathematics, we have been able to determine that that means 58% don’t think it’s a serious threat.

In the United States, 53 percent of those surveyed think global warming is a “somewhat serious” or “very serious” threat. Gore shouldn’t celebrate those numbers, though, because that’s down from 63% in 2008.

Only 10% of the residents of Somaliland think global warming is a somewhat serious or very serious threat.

Greece is is the nation most afraid of global warming. Perhaps that nation’s economic woes can be attributed to the fact that 87% of Greeks spent all their money on Gore’s snakeoil.

Global warming or not, our environment is in serious shit.

This year, North Carolina saw more tornadoes (60) in one day than it’s yearly average.

The newly appointed Climate Commissioner of Australia, Tim Flannery, noted zoologist and author of the book The Weather Makers, had this to say recently:

” If we cut emissions today, global temperatures are not likely to drop for about a thousand years.”

“Just let me finish and say this. If the world as a whole cut all emissions tomorrow the average temperature of the planet is not going to drop in several hundred years, perhaps as much as a thousand years because the system is overburdened with CO2 that has to be absorbed and that only happens slowly.”

So it sounds like even if AGW or “climate change” or whatever were real AND caused by human activity, no matter what we try to do about it, we’re basically just pissing in the wind. We might as well try emptying the Mississippi River by bailing with paper cups. In light of that fact, it seems unreasonable to get too excited about it and devote our attention to MORE URGENT problems that we can actually have an effect on. Yes, by all means, let’s use our resources wisely and not waste them but the hair-shirt hysteria peddled by Al Gore and the Hollywood shills is just bullshit that serves their own purposes.

And by the way Al, if you knew anything at all about science, you’d know it’s NEVER settled.

It’s really disheartening to see how little people care about the environment. Just because they can’t immediately see the earth on fire in front of them, they choose to ignore the issue that will impact their children. Just as every conservative worries about what share of the debt their child will have to pay, every human should worry about the impact we’re having on the earth, and what that does to their child’s future. Between loss of habitat, poisoning the water, creating mountains of garbage, releasing toxic chemicals into the atmosphere – earth won’t be clean forever. Pretty soon, humans will make every part of it a dump. While we might not like Al Gore or the way he put forth his message, every conservative should be concerned with saving the planet, so that our children can see polar bears, coral reels, and bald eagles. I think we all can see that this debt is not sustainable, and this pollution level is not sustainable.

Seems the loonies come out of the woodwork at the mere mention of AlGore’s name.

They are all too young to remember that folks have been making millions crying wolf for decades. “Coming ice age” Global warming” “Climate change”.. Blah blah blah.
Either that or they do not, cannot or will not think for themselves.

America will never see a change for the better unless we are willing to make drastic changes. Money will continue to win over the environment and our children will suffer the consequences.

Very thorough article! If you enjoy learning about climate change and its effect on our Earth, you may wanna check out Penn State’s Dr. Richard Alley, (featured in Earth: The Operators’ Manual), his colleagues and their studies! In our interviews and programs on the scientist and his colleagues, they discuss their theories on climate change, its harmful effects and what we can do to prevent further damage to our Earth. Here’s the link: http://bit.ly/h8EY6q
Take care.

Someone arrest this imbecilic fraud, strip him of his senatorship, his undeserved peace prize, his possessions (including his house(s)), and slam him in the pokey, with an open invitation for Joe Public to come and throw things at him – the harder, heavier and lumpier, and more frequent the better.

Oh, and make sure his cell is REALLY cold, and without electricity as a reminder to him what we’ll all suffer because of his unprincipled lunacy and downright lies.
