Britons least concerned about climate change - Telegraph

The annual Climate Confidence Monitor found the number of people worrying about global warming worldwide has fallen by eight per cent to just over a third in the last year as the economic downturn kicked in.
Just fifteen per cent of people in Britain worry about climate change and how the world responds to the problem, the lowest figure for any of the 12 countries surveyed. The figure is down from 26 per cent last year.

All that propaganda has been money well spent then, imagine how few would care if we didn't have drowning puppies and polar bears on our screens and in our schools every day.
More, more, more is the only answer!

Lord Stern's response to this survey showing "Just fifteen per cent of people in Britain worry about climate change and how the world responds to the problem" is.....

"this is a clear call from the global population for a strong and effective deal"

I wonder how that fits with Oliver Kamm's definition of 'denial'.

Given that the current UK government was supported by little more than 20% of eligible voters, Lord Stern probably feels justified in his assertion. The remaining 85% is split between those who don't believe in it at all, believe in it a tad, believe in it an itty bitty bit, believe in it somewhat, etc.

Interestingly, the figure of 15% is reasonably close to the way the Science Museum's Prove It poll is going.
