Bummer: Concern Over Climate Doom Shrinks Globally

People are worried about their economies. They’re worried about feeding their families, being able to heat their homes. Worrying about the climate crisis scam is popular in theory, not practice, so, when real world things happen, it becomes less concerning

Concern about climate change shrinks globally as threat grows – study

Concerns about climate change shrank across the world last year, a survey shows, with fewer than half those questioned believing it posed a “very serious threat” to their countries in the next 20 years.

Only 20% of people in China, the world’s biggest polluter, said they believed that climate change was a very serious threat, down 3 percentage points from the previous poll in 2019, the survey by Gallup World Risk Poll showed on Wednesday.

Globally, the figure fell by 1.5 percentage points to 48.7% in 2021, it said.

The COVID-19 pandemic and concerns about more immediate issues such as health and livelihoods may partly explain the drop, the survey, based on over 125,000 interviews in 121 countries, showed.

Of course, even those who take it seriously do little about it in their own lives. Kinda like sports: so many of us are Very Concerned over how our sports team is doing, but, we aren’t out their playing, right? Most Warmists do little to nothing in their own lives. They just advocate for Governments to pass laws, and, now that those laws are damaging the energy supply, they’re a bit concerned. When those laws mess with food production, they’re concerned. When those laws mess with housing, they’re concerned. But, not concerned with the climate crisis scam.

Here’s an interesting comment from the article

It’s the extremism that is turning people off. When every weather event becomes climate change and foolish laws, like banning straws become the norm, people stop believing it is serious. Especially when a lot of Europeans are going to die this winter because of lack of fuel.

Perhaps if they weren’t as batshit insane, we could do some stuff. If this wasn’t all about authoritarian politics, we could do something. They are nuts

And this

(MyNorthwest) If a Seattle police officer sees someone snorting cocaine with a plastic straw, they will take the straw but will leave the cocaine, right?

They’re not busting people for possessing small amounts of drugs. The straw has got to go, but the cocaine — you can keep that. Snohomish County has said that it won’t charge you for possessing less than 2 grams of drugs, and Seattle has a de facto legalization of possession.

We are truly the bizarro city. We’re going to have the heroin death site ice cream trucks going up and down the street, and now you can snort cocaine, but not with a plastic straw. It’s really, really an interesting place these days.

Seattle — you can shoot up heroin, you can snort cocaine, but if you use a non-compostable fork — you’re off to the jailhouse.

But, banning the straws saves us from ‘climate change’, right?

    USA per capita CO2 emissions down 25% since 2005. Thanks Teach for helping to reduce carbon pollution
    That 1% per annum helps, doesn’t it..?
    And every week we read about further technology break through a to continue that decrease I think we may well see some years with 2% CO2 reductions as more and more people choose EVs
    When can we expect your review of the new Honda Prologue ?

      Why do you desire to reduce carbon? Many have questioned this but you fail to enlighten.

    • Jl says:

      Yes, Johnny, and that was mainly due to fracking. So continued ff usage decreased our emissions.
      John-when are EVs going to be made using only wind and solar? Besides never….

    America was great when straws were paper and rich people paid higher taxes

    • david7134 says:

      Why do you desire to increase taxes on the rich? It has been demonstrated that lower taxes bring in more tax revenue. So what is the purpose. Do you just desire to harm those better and smarter than yourself?

      Rich people have never paid their taxes but I am all for billionaires paying 99 percent of what they own. I mean after all. 99 percent of the billionaires of the world are LEFTIST WOKE LUNATICS.

      Make America Great Again

      Yes, returning to taxing the rich who then just use a 1000 loopholes to pay 20 percent is a great plan. And paper straws. Awesome. LETS DESTROY SOME MORE TREES that suck CO2 OUT OF THE AIR.


      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Are you admitting that pedoDon did not Make America Great Again?

        Paper straws are compostable but plastic ones aren’t so the plastic ends up in the ocean! Anyway, why use straws at all – just drink.

        The top marginal tax rate was 90% following WWII. We built colleges, cities, highways, airports, Medicare and the greatest middle class in human history. With our successes came the excesses of atmospheric CO2.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Maybe Rimjob could learn the difference between marginal and effective tax rates.

          The rate had reached 94 percent during World War II, on income over $200,000 (approx. $2.49 million in today’s dollars). It dropped down to 91 percent in 1946 and remained there until the Kennedy tax cuts in 1962-64. Brackets weren’t inflation adjusted back then, so it still applied on income over $200,000, which by then had reached $1.41 million in today’s dollars.

          Rimjob, didja get the part about “income over $200K”? ie. income taxes on $200K wasn’t $180,000.
          Not even close.
          It may be difficult to understand for a guy whose company pissed away hundreds of millions of investors money.
          Stay stupid, dumbass.

    • Jl says:

      Actually, whatever John says usually the opposite is true. When the rich had higher tax rates, they actually paid a smaller amount of the total than they now, as you’ve been informed of many times. The top 1% pays around 40% of the total fed income tax bill, much more than they paid when the top rates were 50% or higher. Look it up, John. Don’t be afraid…

    When confronted with the reality and truth behind CHINA’s DESIRE to see them poor, broke, and destitute. Freezing in the winter and burning up in the summer? Well, they tend to reject a scam when it is laid out to them in such obvious terms.

    I mean right now the Swedish are actually Implying the USA blew up the pipeline after conducting their own review of the Nordstream explosions and then refusing to help the EU investigate the blasts nor share their findings. Amazing that the big, bad ANTI-GLOBULL WARMING NATION does not seem too concerned by the explosion since their pipeline is now feeding the EU with NATUAL GAS despite their AGW fanaticism.

    AGW is the biggest scam in the world. Right behind the GREAT RESET to take everything from the little people and give it to governments and billionaires and the LEFTISTS SCREAM HALLELUJAH!!!!!

    It is amazing what politicians say in private and public. And the little AGW SHEEPLE go BAHHHHHHHH!!
