USA Leads the world again

Free press with access to non-liberal sources is completely to blame for this. Does your country get conservative talk radio? Do you even get Fox news?
This was posted at WUWT. The poll is telling. From too much experience, Euro’s see the US public as ignorant, often the feeling is mutual. We’re all people but the news sources in the US are more balanced in my opinion. Look at the effect it has:
The United States of America leads the world in the belief that global warming is of natural causes. Yes, every climatologist sees our public as stupid idiots, I feel the same contempt for many of the climatologists although I no longer wonder if idiocy causes the incorrect conclusions. Advocacy is the obvious culprit. The difference between countries though is that nobody has ever proven the observed warming is anything other than natural variance — and look where the USA comes out!
47% natural causes.
I suppose natural causes could include the propensity to believe authority but? …………………
Well, as our almost certainly doomed economy dwindles to nothing, what does that percentage reveal. I’ll explain it in one simple sentence which far too much of humanity hasn’t ever put into appropriate context.
You can’t trust one single thing told to you by any government, even if they say what you want to hear. The official incentives are separate from society needs and needs are too easy to manipulate with compliant media.
As Michael Savage likes to say — Beware the government media complex.
It looks to me like the stupid Americans may have it right this time, although the more likely accurate response is bad observation followed by I don’t really know. The one hundred percent inaccurate response by most of the world is without question ‘a result of human activities’. Nobody has proven that.
I can say that I believe in Anthropogenic warming. It is a real effect to which there is no question. My questions are more difficult (as always in this life), how much warming, did we truly detect it accurately, and is it really a problem? All very difficult questions to which the leftists all seem to have both perfect understanding and solutions. It is no coincidence that near all the leftist IPCC, US govt, UN, UK, etc. solutions are also extraordinarily destructive to business.
I am a lot of things but I am not fooled.
