Bummer: Only Half Of Youts Can Pick The RightThink Definition Of ‘Climate Change’

What is climate? It’s the long term averages of the weather. Those change over time. Sometimes it is a cooling period, sometimes a warming period. The debate is on causation. In Climate Cult world, though

Only half of young people have clear idea of climate change: poll

While most children and young people have heard of climate change, only half of them understand what it is, a new poll shows.

On average, 85 percent of young people aged 15-24 surveyed in 55 countries said they have heard of climate change, yet only 50 percent chose the correct definition, according to a poll by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and Gallup, whose results were released on Thursday.

The young people were asked to select between “seasonal changes in weather that occur every year” and “more extreme weather events and a rise in average world temperatures resulting from human activity” to gauge their knowledge of climate change.

The “more extreme changes” response was the correct answer as defined in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. The poll was released as world leaders are gathering in Dubai for this year’s UN Climate Change Conference (COP28).

Man, it’s a real shame when the indoctrination can only hit 50% on what is a non-scientific definition meant to scare people.

“Young people have been some of the biggest heroes in driving action to address the impact of climate change,” said UNICEF Executive Director Catherine Russell in a press release. “They have been calling for climate action on the streets or in meeting rooms, and we need to do even more to ensure that all children and young people understand the crisis that hangs over their future.”

No, some have been calling for changes (and then take long fossil fueled trips to climate conferences while wearing tons of fast fashion). The rest seem to only pay lip-service as they’re too busy doing challenges and dances on TikTok and taking fossil fueled trips to take selfies.

    Teach do you really think that those “youts” in Sierra Leone and Bangladesh are taking long fossil fueled airplane trips? I don’t.
    In Sierra Leone 16% of “yours” have access to a cellphone connected to the internet .
    In eastern and southern Africa 13% of children Ave internet in their homes

    I also rather doubt they are heavily invested in fast fashion
    Are your opinions the result of willful ignorance of the lives of most people on our planet?
    You really should travel more

    That what the rhetorical shift from “global warming” to “climate [change/crisis/catastrophe/emergency/…]” earned the industry: a loss of focus.
