Results of the latest Gallup poll:
Worldwide, Blame for Climate Change Falls on Humans
Americans among least likely to attribute to human causes
by Julie Ray and Anita Pugliese
WASHINGTON, D.C. — World residents are more likely to blame human activities than nature for the rise in temperatures associated with climate change. Thirty-five percent of adults in 111 countries in 2010 say global warming results from human activities, while less than half as many (14%) blame nature. Thirteen percent fault both.
Lawrence Solomon makes an observation:
In Sub-Saharan Africa, where 54% are not aware that their climate is alleged to be warming, a mere 22% have heard of the global warming issue and predominantly blame humans for the warming. In undeveloped Asia, 48% are unaware that the climate is warming and 27% predominantly blame humans.
It would seem that access to MSM figures greatly in that trend, many of the world’s poorest have no radio, TV, newspapers, or Internet access. But one has to wonder, if the people that live closest to the earth (such as natives in sub-Saharan Africa) can’t detect changes around them, are we manufacturing a crisis that we wouldn’t notice otherwise?
