Interpretations of Propaganda

A Gallup poll reported recently the percentage of people who believe in global warming and the impact on their lives.
It’s interesting that the lowest point for the dark green line occurs in early 2010, right after climategate. People seem smart enough to recognize the basic physics of global warming, and some appear blindly susceptible to the fear mongering when it involves people hurting the environment. Considering that we have seen no global warming since 1998, it is impressive that 11% more people are afraid of serious effects to their lives than in 1998 when the first poll was recorded.
They must think that the thermometer records are a an evil Koch brother plot or something. I don’t know, it is impossible to make any sense out of what people think sometimes.
The good news is it only cost approximately a half trillion dollars to change those opinions. By that estimate, we can pass 50 percent fear-for-life for only another 637 billion and a supermajority of 66% for only 1.36 trillion dollars!
Money well spent I say!
