Climate Change deniers take note. You’re in a very small minority

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?

The International Energy Agency says we’re on track for a 6 degree temperature rise.

Anybody with any kind of clue would realise this spells a massive disaster for our species, and a good proportion of other species on this planet.

OK, we have well and truly outed the tin foil hat brigade. Have we broken the record for posting rate?

Maybe. I’ve got a couple of Ros?s rolling around under the bed, but being chardonnay socialist wines I didn’t think they counted as true commies.

Brilliant! … leaving aside the fact that the cold war ended decades ago and no-one takes that sort of scaremongering McCarythism seriously anymore (with the exception of people mentally living in ‘the good old days’ of course).

Climate change has not demonstrably killed one person. Communism has killed millions. I know what the real danger is.

Shakespeare is not demonstrably a good writer. Does it mean he isn’t? Of course not.

Anyway, do you even know what Communism is? Please define it and spell out precisely how it has killed millions of people.

Wow … you’re still living in the 1950s! What’s it like?

Let’s be clear on this: if you don’t know anything much about a particular topic, you should refrain from having an opinion about it, because your opinion is likely to be an insult to those who do know a thing or two.

No.

I for one am more than willing to discuss any opinion. Discussing them is a great way to test if our opinions are informed or not. But everyone should be willing to abandon or modify their opinion if it is shown to be wrong.

I try to live by the maxim: “To have strong opinions; but weakly held”.

By which I mean that I will try to come to an opinion on anything that is important – and I’ll defend that opinion as best I can. But if a better opinion is presented to me then I’ll abandon my previous one and start defending the new one instead.

So please Thebrownstreak69, I am interested in your opinion.

Yeah but this is just naturally occuring communism, no reason to believe it’s man made or that we contribute towards it in anyway.

Those damn volcanos are always erupting and pumping our atmosphere full of classless social orders!

Let’s be real here – the answer is nothing. You enjoy the privilege of idiocy. You get to be continously, repeatedly wrong and still hold your head high. You’ll get to say it’s not real; that’s it might be real, but not as bad as everybody says; that it’s real, and bad, but it’s natural; that it’s real, bad, and we caused it, but we don’t have to do anything; oh no, now it’s too late to do anything about; and finally, that it’s real, we’re ****ed, and it’s all those scientists’ fault for not doing something sooner. And there’ll be no shortage of idiots turning up the aircon and nodding right along with you.

Nice work.

You want to argue a point on someone insulting someone else? Winner.

…says the guy who’s brought absolutely nothing, zip, nada, zero to the ‘argument’. ‘Herp, I must be the only person who noticed that climate changes over time and has done forever, derp.’ Thank you, Carl Sagan, you’ve saved us all with your razor insight into this complex global issue.

How about this: you tell us what it would take to convince you. You’re not convinced by data, you’re not convinced by expert consensus, you’re not convinced by the basic physics you can demonstrate in a coke bottle terrarium. You’re smarter than all the scientists. You’re not bound by the fundamental properties of elemental particles. What will convince you?

If you care to read a few posts up, I thanked Howeph for explaining to me his reasoning, which I now understand.

I was going to write a further reply, but don’t think I’ll bother. Nasty, ugly humans like yourself obviously have enough bagge as it is.

Going on your past performance, it seems unlikely that your reply would be particularly insightful.

Baggage, not bagge, obviously.
