Now, if you read the CBC you find out that 2% of the Canadians surveyed don’t believe climate is changing. That’s the headline “Only 2% of Canadians deny climate change, suggests poll”
But if you actually read the article here are the numbers:
32 per cent — said they believe climate change is happening because of human activity
54 per cent said they believe it’s because of human activity and partially due to natural climate variation.
9 per cent believe climate change is occurring due to natural climate variation.
2 per cent said they don’t believe climate change is occurring at all.
Does not fit the narrative so the CBC goes with the misleading 2% number. (And you have to be pretty dumb to think that climate is not changing – just the PDO will ensure a degree of change on a sixty year cycle.)
Our warmist media can’t bring itself to recognize that the CAGW panic is over. The science does not support panic, nor do the economics justify very much more than a few studies ideally based on realistic estimates of potential change. (Not 1 metre sea level rises in a decade or two.) Better still, CAGW has entirely lost political traction in North America. There are, of course, still greenie scare mongers; but there is next to no political support for any measures costing anything to address what is increasingly seen as a non-problem.
But, for heavens sake, don’t tell the CBC.
