A report published today suggests that as many as 1 in 6 adults in the UK do not believe that humans are causing climate change. Kings College London conducted research into why some people don’t trust expertise.
According to The BBC:
Professor Bobby Duffy, director of the Policy Institute at King’s, called the finding “a real concern as it may affect support for action.”
The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said last year: “It is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land.”
The study also says the UK public underestimates how much scientists agree on the link between human activity and climate change.
However, the majority of people in the UK (72%) do accept humans’ role in climate change, with a quarter of the UK public claiming it is already harming them personally.
The number of people in the UK who believe climate change is not mainly caused by humans (17%) was similar to Germany (18%) and Poland (16%) but much lower than Norway, where nearly a quarter of adults surveyed held that opinion.
It is not unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, the sea and the land. It’s junk science. None of the IPPC climate change models mentions the sun. Read that last sentence again. Amazing, isn’t it?
According to the “experts” the sun has no influence on Earth’s climate. Also, none of the models attempt to answer the most important question. If Co2 only makes up 0.04% of our atmosphere, what is the human contribution to that?
Don’t hold your breath waiting for a UK journalist to ask that question. That’s a career ender.
Climate change is the greatest and most dangerous hoax ever perpetrated against the people of the world.
