As the Daily Express newspaper observes, the alarmists are failing utterly to get more than a small section of alienated and morose youngsters to join their climate jihad. Most normal young people simply don’t care:
YOUNG people worry about money, street violence and their body image. But they don’t care much about climate change, according to a survey out yesterday.
Perhaps predictably, the fees came out as the most important issue among the 3,000 questioned. But the survey, commissioned by the Public Service Broadcasting Trust, revealed young people were least concerned about climate change.
Daily Express. Climate Change? The Young Don’t Care.
The survey revealed that a measly 12% of youngsters felt they had been “adversely affected” by global warming, in what amounts to a damning indictment of the failure of the massive government-backed propaganda machine which has been spinning this issue 24-7 for years now.
Rather than spending their youth in a nail-biting depression over their immanent doom, it seems young people are choosing to enjoy their lives. Good for them. As I’ve argued elsewhere, if global warming is such a huge threat to humanity, why aren’t the greens demanding that we build hundreds of nuclear power stations right now to really bring down Co2 emissions? Could it be that it’s because this is about politics, and not science?
