  1. peterhodges says:

    so the guardian polled the victims of its own brainwashing campaign, in order to see if its working.

  2. Baa Humbug says:

    The most recent Fox Poll shows that 83% of foxes (96% of vixens) believe chickens have nothing to fear from foxes.

  3. Mike Davis says:

    This story is about making shit up to support your position. That is about 180 degrees from the last statement about public concern for warming from another source.

  4. 83% of Brits (British guardian readers) view global warming as a current or imminent threat:

    Realistically thats 0.4% of the British population. (I made this statistic up too, it sounds correct to me)

  5. TinyCO2 says:

    Lots of people believe in eternal damnation but commit sin on a regular basis. All it proves is that people lie to themselves as well as to pollsters.

  6. latitude says:

    The results are on page 7, read it first.

    ..then laugh

    • Bruce says:

      The Guardian has just lied.

      “Asked if climate change was a current or imminent threat, 83% of Britons agreed, with just 14% saying global warming poses no threat.”

      The above sentence is a lie based on the text of question 3, which asks about “climate change” not “global warming”, and the fact that the first two answers add up to 83%, and the third gives the 14%.

      If they wanted to ask about global warming in the deepest winter in living memory then they should have asked about global warming. Or not use that terminology in the article.

      • PhilJourdan says:

        The devil is always in the details of the poll. The 83% looks impressive, but only 2/3rds of them think man is the cause. And as you point out, the way the questions are worded – and then reworded for publication mean the difference between ingnorance and knowledge.

  7. richcar 1225 says:

    I heard in interview on NPR yesterday with a columnist from the Guardian who said that to increase circulation they hired four environmental reporters and then formed partnerships with other environmental websites in order to feed traffic to them. The result was touted as an economic success and a model for expanding their online business.

  8. Amino Acids in Meteorites says:

    Asked if climate change was a current or imminent threat, 83% of Britons agreed

    If the imminent threat was they were going to get the hell taxed out of them then you’d think the number would have be 100%.

  9. BioBob says:

    Only about 39% of Americans believe in evolution, depending on who you ask…..

    That doesn’t change the fact that 100% of them are naturally selected. Death is like hydrogen and stupidity – universal.

    • Alan Simpson says:

      Snigger, I live in the UK, the Grauniad figures are pure desperation. The only people pushing GW are the people desperate to keep their money flowing. The frankly pathetic attempts by the, ( hopefully soon to be sold broken up and off ), BBC will come back to haunt them along with the lies they propagated to defend the MET Office and attack the government.

      Despite the evidence the Grauniad shows to the contrary, we are not yet a country of morons.

  10. Michael says:

    Love The Guardian, hate the Guardian. Believe their polls. Good luck. The same with any media, they report what sells. They’ll report diametrically opposing views every second day. (Not every other day-their regular readers have 24 hour memories, they;d catch on).
    The “man made disaster” is a bit thick. We may not be helping; but believing we are THE Cause, that’s a bit of conceit don’t you think?

    • suyts says:

      Yeh, we’re controlling something we didn’t make and don’t understand……………… someone please tell me how that works in some people’s minds?

  11. Tokamak says:

    The Grauniad sells about 50’000 copies a day. Our UK population is close on 60,000,000. The BBC probably accounts for 5,000 copies as they like to get their editorial line from the lefty eco-loons daily bible. Almost everyone I work with either doesn’t care about Global Warming or doubts that it’s happening. In watermelon world where bbc and guardian journalists live they’re fighting a desperate last rear guard action to save their religion from oblivion seemingly unaware that they have already lost.

  12. Andy Weiss says:

    They polled 6 people in their office and found 5 to go along. That is 83%. The 6th one was no doubt fired!
