UPDATED: "Greatest threat to humanity" comes 7th on voters' importance list

The voters have had enough of the hysteria and alarmism peddled to them by the government and an obliging media. The greatest threat to humanity since the dawn of time (© Al Gore, James Hansen etc etc) is slipping steadily down the list as we collectively wake up to the dodgy science and the huge costs of an ETS:
AUSTRALIANS' anxiety about climate change is falling substantially, even as the issue dominates political debate in Canberra.

The latest Lowy Institute poll shows that tackling climate change is viewed as only the seventh-most important of 10 foreign policy goals, and global warming the fourth of a dozen "threats to Australia's vital interests", just a point or two above other threats.

In 2007, tackling climate change was perceived as the joint top foreign policy goal, together with protecting the jobs of Australian workers.

In 2007, 75 per cent of those surveyed said climate change was a very important issue. Last year, this fell to 66 per cent, and this year to 56 per cent.

Global warming was viewed as "a critical threat" by 68 per cent in 2007, 66 per cent last year and 52 per cent this year.

So that's a drop of 14% in one year, compared to just a 2% fall between 2007 and 2008.

  • This is exactly the trend that NZ politicians are watching very carefully. The idea is and always has been, to make soothing noises to the anxious, give the impression of caring, yet actually do nothing at all until the polls reflect the fact that no-one could care less.

    It's straight from Yes Minister...
