The public remains unconvinced about warnings that the climate is being affected by global warming, according to a new poll. Findings by Ipsos Mori show Britons believe that the issue is not as bad as the scientists and politicians claim. There is also scepticism about "greenspin" and a feeling that the situation is being overstated in order to raise revenue rather than save the planet. In fact climate change is not a priority for most people in the UK - terrorism, crime, graffiti and even dog mess are of more concern.Britons would be right on all four points. Naturally, The Guardian and most of their readership disagrees, poor dears, as does The Torygraph who pompously declares that Britons are "in denial." "In denial" for considering that terrorism is a greater threat than global warming.
Seems to me that Britons are showing more horse sense than their broadsheets.
