Most of the human race does not see global warming as a serious threat, according to a Gallup poll released last week that surveyed individuals in 111 countries.


Worldwide, only 42 percent told Gallup they believed global warming was either a “somewhat serious” or “very serious” threat. Gallup did not publish the separate percentages for each answer. In the United States, 53 percent said they believed global warming was a “somewhat serious” or “very serious” threat to themselves and their families. That was down from 63 percent in polling that Gallup did on the question in the United States in 2007 and 2008.


Any ideas regarding the change in public perception since 2008?

Of the 186 billion tons of carbon from CO2 that enter earth's atmosphere each year from all sources, only 6 billion tons are from human activity. Approximately 90 billion tons come from biologic activity in earth's oceans and another 90 billion tons from such sources as volcanoes and decaying land plants.


At 380 parts per million CO2 is a minor constituent of earth's atmosphere-- less than 4/100ths of 1% of all gases present. Compared to former geologic times, earth's current atmosphere is CO2- impoverished.


Graph Showing Real Data Temperature Fluctuations from the Vostok Ice Cores


Notice the Increase in Temperature around 25,000-15,000 Years ago. The Earth is supposed to be warming it has been since then

We are going through a period which is known as an interglacial Period. Global warming is a fraud; a money scam. Al Gore is a fraud. Cap and Trade is what they want to implement.

The average Temperature has fluctuated much over the last million years This Graph will show you that the warming was already happening before humans even had the industrial revolution.


You should be more worried about the Ice Age that should be coming according to the patterns in the Graph Within a 100 - 15,000 Years. The Ice Age will return Gradually most likely. Many Scientist believe it will happen when the Currents Change in the Oceans. That may be the leading Cause.

I'm all for global warming, i think its meant to happen and I think its for the betterment of humanity.

Seems like people are cashing in on something thats cosmic and using fear to make few bucks somehow.

Lack of knowledge basically. I am actually in the process of putting together a very in-depth post here about global warming which is happening at a very significant rate.

You certainly may argue the causes but the jump in global temperature over the last 20 years is going totally against what the temperature has done throughout history.

Did you actually know we are in an ice age right now? Probably not as it's not a generally know fact outside of the scientific community.

To answer your question though I would say that the recent scandals involving falsified information and people just plain ol getting bored with the subject and no immediate danger they can see all contribute to people not thinking it's a big deal.

However if this warming trend does not stop, and it's massivly spiking, the world is going to have very dramatic changes within our lifetime.

This in my opinion is the most serious threat facing humankind at the moment.

Public perception changed when the UN was exposed as decietful in it's climate change findings. It also didn't help that the elite were greedily trying to find ways to turn this potential problem (climate change) into mass amounts of cash. Once trust is betrayed, eveything becomes a lie.

Piers Corbin who just put the pro global warming british met office to shame several years in a row says
Ice age like conditions commencing In 2015

un like the glowball warmists
he gets his predictions correct

with fukushima and the like
the insane globalists bent on starting nuclear war
speculators causing starvation
gmo and the terminator gene

and people are worried about something that is already a proven HOAX
like Global warming
haha
thats FUNNY


PPS
a person might want to look into all the undersea volcanoes that have just been discovered
and what the record shows about their correlation to ice ages and solar lunar activities.

or not

Would you argue that the media's shift in attention from global warming (seen to be much more prominent in 2008 - especially during the elections) to domestic and foreign policy issues would also play a role in the change in public perception, at least in the United States?

Absolutely the media has a huge effect on perception of an issue. As there appears to be no immediate danger the media's coverage of global warming has decreased significantly.

Figure the majority of people get their news from television and now internet that plays a vital role in people's knowledge.

And actually we are not going into an ice age as we are already in one, rather we are working our way out of one. And global temperatures are going up drastically and you can not find one single scientific report that states otherwise.

It is a pure and simple fact. There are disagreements about the causes or how quickly they will continue to rise but they are rising without a doubt.

The perception has changed because people have begun to see it for the scam it is--as several others have already pointed out. A scant few years ago you had to actually sit down and do the research for yourself. But now the perpetrators have been found out and their lies have been made public.

So it doesn't surprise me that public perception has changed; what surprises me is that it has changed so little. Which I attribute to the stupidity of the masses. They ain't like us....
