Ready to Be Green!
According to BBC.com, the world is ready to make sacrifices for eco-friendly living.
“Overall, 83% of respondents throughout the world agreed that individuals would definitely or probably have to make lifestyle changes to reduce the amount of climate-changing gases they produce.”
Ya think? Human caused pollution and climate change isn’t about to slow down if we keep on pumpin’ the same emissions into the atmosphere. When it comes to spending tax dollars on
“Worldwide 50% are in favour and 44% are opposed.”
It would have been interesting to know who was opposed because they think global warming is a conspiracy invented by the liberal media to brain wash us, or who thinks it’s a lost cause, and who’s secretly a little excited for the global catastrophe that’s sure to ensue if we don’t do something.
One of the most surprising revelations is that the Chinese are ahead of the game when it comes to gung-ho citizens (which is fitting because of the origin of that phrase).
“The Chinese are the most enthusiastic when it comes to energy taxes – 85% of those polled saying they were in favour, 24 percentage points more than in the next most-supportive countries.”
It’s all very ironic considering the slew of criticism against the Chinese for their poor pollution control. Just a year ago, a thick cloud of coal dust danced its way from Northern China all the way to Seoul.
All I have to say is, way to go China, your communist butts are kickin’ our Democracy spreadin’ asses when it comes to trying to save the planet.
