The Lewandowsky participation question

UPDATE: There are so many respondents (thank you) and since it is clear that about 97% of WUWT readers hadn’t seen/participated in 2010 Lewandowsky survey, that we’ve added a second thread to get the most important part of the data.

You can still record your participation/non-participation below in the question form, but if you DID PARTICPATE in 2010 please also see this new thread:

People who previously answered that they DID participate in 2010 are encourage to drop a note in comments at that new thread.

At the suggestion of Steve McIntyre, I’m posting this request because we know that both AGW proponents and skeptics alike read WUWT daily. It therefore is the most broad reaching venue to ask this simple question:

Did you participate in the Lewandowsky conspiracy opinions survey anywhere in the year 2010 on any blog? (if you are unfamiliar with it and don’t know if you did/did not,  read Lewandowsky’s paper here)

There are two steps: First I ask you to do the poll below, then leave a comment with your usual handle in the comment section signifying your answering the question.

Note that unlike the Lewandowsky poll, safeguards are in place to prevent vote stuffing.

Step 1: Answer the question below

Step2: Leave a comment in your usual handle/name below stating your answer in Step 1 (note Steve’s re-boot at the top of WUWT to leave a comment in the other thread if you did participate).

This will be a sticky top post for a few days. Please ONLY LEAVE COMMENTS ABOUT YOUR PARTICIPATION YES/NO. Most others will be deleted. Thanks for your consideration – Anthony

I can’t see many AGW proponents participating in this – not the honest ones anyway. But I guess we’ll see.

I am truly amazed that so few people (warmists in particular I guess) have done so little research on their own to try and understand Climate Change.
As a former Green Party member and voter I understand their concern for the planet, but to just listen to the media / watch movies such as An Inconvenient Truth etc, without doing due diligence is plain stupid.
The media feel the need to promote catastrophe – they have to make a profit for their shareholders. As for Al Gore – well, the less said the better. Let him slide into history as a teller of fairy tales.
It takes very little research to understand that the Earth has been warmer than present most of the time since the last Ice Age ended.
How did the Vikings manage to grow enough hay to feed their cattle through winter without a warmer climate then? It’s certainly not possible now to do that in Greenland.
We all know that the truth will always come to the surface and the Warmists will be shown to be “the sky is falling” people.
It’s time their leaders showed some common sense and helped the rest of these sheep to understand the truth.

My vote was: I’m a skeptic and I DID NOT participate in the Lewadowsky Survey in 2010, mainly because the year 2010 passed by without me being aware of «the Lewadowsky Survey» at all
