Americans are ‘illiterate’ about climate change, claims expert.

Right. All it takes for Americans to be illiterate about any subject, is to not see it from the pov of the left.
This is one of the stories on America that appears today in the foreign press.
And there is NO chance at all that this fellow could possibly be mistaken. Just ask him.

According to one hack, America’s lack of knowledge on climate change could prevent the world from reaching an agreement to stop catastrophic global warming.  WOO-HOO

America’s lack of knowledge on climate change could prevent the world from reaching an agreement to stop catastrophic global warming, scientists said in an attack on the country’s environmental policy.

Professor John Schellnhuber, one of the world’s leading global warming experts, described the US as “climate illiterate”

He said Americans have a lower understanding of the problems of climate change than people in Brazil or China..

More than 100 scientists are meeting at Oxford University to discuss the dangers of climate change causing droughts, floods and mass extinctions around the world.

The conference is designed to put pressure on world leaders coming together at the end of the year for the “most important meeting in the history of the human species”.

The UN Climate Change Conference in December will try to reach an international deal on cutting carbon emissions so global warming stays below an increase of 2C (3.6F) above pre-industrial levels.

Prof Schellnhuber, the director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Change, said the chance of getting such a deal was “pie in the sky” because rich countries like America are unwilling to sign up to ambitious enough targets.

“In a sense the US is climate illiterate. If you look at global polls about what the public knows about climate change even in Brazil, China you have more people who know about the problem and think deep cuts in emissions are needed,” he said.

“Why can’t we save the world without the US?”

Well that’d be a first professor. Please, be our guest.

If you look at global polls about what the public knows about climate change

What the public knows, or what the public has been indoctrinated to believe? So far, the ppl who do not see it all in the same light, have been very slow to produce a movie shown round the world and with much hoopla. In fact ... no movie at all. Maybe it’s time.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
