Australia is waking up

A recent poll by the Lowy Institute has found that Australia’s attitudes towards global warming has softened. Only 41% of Australians now think that global warming is a serious issue, down from 68% in 2006. As Andrew Bolt points out, “one in three warmists have cooled”. 39% do not want to pay a cent extra to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and 75% think the government’s response is poor.

It is interesting to note that after Gillard’s lie over not having a carbon dioxide tax, she has tried to claim a mandate by suggesting Australians want action on global warming. It would seem now that even this thin excuse has a rapidly-declining basis.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?
