Poll: Support for global climate action FALLS!

Please read my previous post about President Klaus, the Czech President and E.U. President-elect--he's a huge climate skeptic and has more or less pronounced the end of the global warming scam. The failing economy might drive the final nail in the coffin.

Previous polls show that this reluctant admission by the media is true: The world is saying "no thanks" to this hyped baloney and efforts that will require their personal suffering to "fix" something that isn't even broken.

I love how the Windsor Star makes efforts in the same piece to show snow cannons blasting snow on European ski resorts because of "how hot is has been during winter." Really??!!? Perhaps they haven't been reading the same news and empirical evidence I've been reading, which I've linked to heavily on this blog to make a point--the media is in the tank for global warming, and global warming is a bunch of crap (that they're pulling out all stops to save).

Efforts to support global climate-change falls: Poll:

PARIS - There is both growing public reluctance to make personal sacrifices and a distinct lack of enthusiasm for the major international efforts now underway to battle climate change, according to findings of a poll of 12,000 citizens in 11 countries, including Canada.

Results of the poll were released this week in advance of the start of a major international conference in Poland where delegates are considering steps toward a new international climate-change treaty to replace the Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2012.

There already are reports emerging that some countries, such as coal-dependent Poland, are pushing for special treatment to avoid making major commitments to slash carbon emissions during a global economic downturn.

Less than half of those surveyed, or 47 per cent, said they were prepared to make personal lifestyle changes to reduce carbon emissions, down from 58 per cent last year.

Only 37 per cent said they were willing to spend "extra time" on the effort, an eight-point drop. And only one in five respondents - or 20 per cent - said they'd spend extra money to reduce climate change. That's down from 28 per cent a year ago.
