Who cares about climate change?

Thanks to the blog of the irrepressible Hilary Ostrov, a long-time WUWT commenter, I found out about a poll gone either horribly wrong or totally predictably depending on your point of view. It’s a global poll done by the United Nations, with over six million responses from all over the planet, and guess what?
UN global poll
The revealed truth is that of the sixteen choices given to people regarding what they think are the important issues in their lives, climate change is dead last. Not only that, but in every sub-category, by age, by sex, by education, by country grouping, it’s right down at the bottom of the list. NOBODY thinks it’s important.
Of course, the only people who care are political shills who want to grab money and power from the oppressed masses!  Come the Revolution, they will be the first ones up against the wall.

Ah, but that is because the simpletons that populate this Earth are ignorant or in denial, or I'm sure that would be the argument. I'm sure only the enlightened ones know what is best for every person on this planet.

Yes, it's because we're deficient and worthy of scorn in some way.

Totally not like we have more important and pressing life-altering concerns between now and the energy death of the universe.

A *certain subset* would ask these questions to the little Dutch boy with his finger in the dyke and then smirk and smug away his indifference, attributing it to his low birth,class or white privilege.
