CNN Poll Shows More Americans Concerned:

Global Warming Only One Concern


by Mondoreb

A new CNN poll just released shows fifty-six percent of Americans blame emissions from cars and industrial plant as the primary cause of global warming.

Other polling news: 56 percent of Americans blame NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN newscast, Time, Newsweek, a major city newsdaily or USA Today as their primary news source.

In a recent Death by 1000 Papercuts' poll, fifty-six percent of respondents blamed the New York Times as a primary cause of gassy emissions in the New York Metro area. Meanwhile, 56% of Americans blamed a lack of matches and the high cost of gasoline as the primary cause for not burning more copies of Newsweek and USA Today for warmth during the winter.

From CNN:
Most Americans blame emissions from cars and industrial plants as the primary cause of global warming and believe the United States should reduce levels even if other countries don't, a survey shows.

Fifty-six percent of poll respondents said the phenomenon of global warming has been proven, and can be largely blamed on human endeavors, such as power plants and factories, according to the CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll.

One wonders if the fifty-six percent of Americans cited in this poll are the same majority of Americans who blame the American education system for failing to educated their childre? Or if this is the same 56% that blame Terminal Sneer for the rigid conformity that substitutes for rigorous thinking in the media elite?

In comparison, 21 percent of those surveyed claimed global warming problems are caused either by natural changes or are unproven.

This last bit may point to the numbers of critical thinkers turned out by much-maligned U.S. public schools.

In unrelated news, 56% of a certain blogger's fingers are going to grab a coffee now.
