Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

First snow seen in Cairo in 100 years. Lol

Too much heat from Al Gore's hot air exhaust has ruined the warmer's brain waves. Poor deluded souls.

Random21,

I also think you may make a legitimate point about eliciting the desired response. The researchers asked this question:

“If nothing is done to reduce global warming in the future, how serious of a problem do you think it will be for the United States-- very serious, somewhat serious, not so serious, or not serious at all?”

I’m no polling expert, but I’ll make an observation that may support your point.

Including the words “serious problem” in all four categories may bias the response. I wonder how folks would answer were the categories serious problem, somewhat of a problem, little problem, or no problem.

I suspect we might get a different impression, but I don’t really know.

“Like you always stay on topic. I will say what I want,harry.”

And that’s fine. You’re free to post whatever you want, and I’m free to ignore any posts I consider either unworthy or irrelevant.

"What do you do to support WV and the republican party,harry?"

That's not germane to this thread. If you'd like to start a thread on this subject, perhaps we could discuss it.

Harry, the WV republican. Lol What do you do to support WV and the republican party,harry? I mean besides preaching to us poor dumb real West Virginians?

Good point, Random21. Thanks for responding to my argument instead of to me.

How should we interpret this? If 76% of us believe warming will be a serious problem and 63% think the Feds should act, but only 6% of us feel motivated to act even by voting, we may make several possible inferences:

1. It may suggest that over half of us would rather let bureaucrats in Washington solve our problems instead of solving them ourselves.

2. It may suggest a tendency toward fatalism. We feel we are powerless, and that our votes don’t count.

3. Your suggestion, that propaganda has scared many of us into believing that warming is a problem, has some merit. However, a counter propaganda campaign has scared many of us into fearing action. Whether or not these two campaigns cancel each other out, I can’t say.

Tiredofit,

I don’t post to bait you. However, I do realize that perceptions are important. I can see how your frustration could make you feel that way.

If you imagine you’re being baited, you should either refrain from responding or confine your response to the substance of what I wrote instead of intimating that I have no right to identify as a West Virginian.

I’m a freedom-loving American. That means you don’t get to tell me what cultural or ethnic group I should identify with.

The same poll found only 6% we worried enough to effect the way they vote. like many other polls, people and give the answer they think is wanted. Ain't no way 29% of the citizens of WV are knowledgeable other than what they have been scared into believing, not by researching it themselves.

The anti-science propaganda campaign is failing to convince West Virginians that carbon emissions aren’t harmful, according to a study by Stanford University Professor Jon Krosnick.

The study found about West Viriginians: 1. 73% of us believe past warming has been caused by humans. 2. 76% of us believe warming will be a serious problems for the US. 3. 63% of us believe the Feds should do more to address warming.
