    Default British public need more brainwashing, BBC says.

    The number of British people who are sceptical about climate change is rising, a poll for BBC News suggests.

    "It is very unusual indeed to see such a dramatic shift in opinion in such a short period," Populus managing director Michael Simmonds told BBC News.

    "The British public are sceptical about man's contribution to climate change - and becoming more so," he added.

    "More people are now doubters than firm believers."


    ...


    "Action is urgently needed," Professor Watson warned.

    "We need the public to understand that climate change is serious so they will change their habits and help us move towards a low carbon economy."

    Can I sense some new and increased Carbon taxes Gordon?

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Are you on the bench? Or do you spend all your time counting your fantasy millions and in between that you post on CUK?

    Proposals on R4 today of a tax £100 per 1000Kg of Co2 from commercial businesses.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Default British public need more brainwashing, BBC says.

    The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs' (Defra) chief scientific adviser, Professor Bob Watson, called the findings "very disappointing".

    "The fact that there has been a very significant drop in the number of people that believe that we humans are changing the Earth's climate is serious," he told BBC News.

    "Action is urgently needed," Professor Watson warned.
    Sorry to be logical about this, but that's not

    British public need more brainwashing, BBC says.

    British public need more brainwashing, Government says, and BBC reports it.
