The Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate has released the results of the climate change survey and it’s not pretty reading for the nutty retards who think Gina Rinehart has their best interests at heart:
The majority of residents (88%) believe that climate change is a genuine problem for the future.
Respondents accept their own lifestyles contribute to climate change (68%). They accept it is not too late to take action and that taking no action would result in unfavourable consequences for their future.
ACT householders (84%) believe that actions by householders can help make a difference in tackling climate change. While 68% believe they should personally take more action, 62% believe householders would have to make difficult or inconvenient changes to their lives in trying to help tackle climate change.
76% of residents believe it is moderately or very urgent for the ACT Government to take action to tackle climate change and 81% want the ACT Government to take a strong leadership role to help ACT residents tackle climate change. On average, ACT residents consider $1.62 per day (per household) an affordable amount to pay to contribute to the cost of new infrastructure and technologies required to reduce carbon emissions.
Most ACT residents (81%) believe they would feel good knowing the ACT Government was taking serious action to tackle climate change, and 79% believe it is a moral duty for the ACT community to take action. 62% of residents report their friends, family or work colleagues would encourage them to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emission and 56% said they would be more willing to take action if they knew that others were also taking action.
While support for the ACT Government plans to reduce carbon emissions and tackle climate change was very high with between 73% and 95% of residents supporting each of 10 suggested plans, only 40% of residents believe they are aware of ACT Government plans to reduce carbon emissions.
So basically climate change denialists are heading down to the tiny minority levels enjoyed by child abusers.
Dare we make the correlation?
