Lol, it is truly astonishing how little Americans know.

Britons

"A survey in February by the BBC found that only 26 percent of Britons believed that “climate change is happening and is now established as largely manmade,” down from 41 percent in November 2009. A poll conducted for the German magazine Der Spiegel found that 42 percent of Germans feared global warming, down from 62 percent four years earlier."

Crazy Americans, they like balanced programming. From the link.


"The timing of a one-sided global warming programme could be particularly sensitive in the U.S., where climate change is an issue in the presidential race."

But British people aren't stupid flat-earthers, because they have a "fancy" accent and are not American.

You got me. I guess I don't know as much about the British as the OP. I bet he watched every Monty Python episode.

You are apparently correct. From your link.

Or, maybe we just don't like watching propaganda films that like to mislead the audience.

More ursus bogus – this time with fake snow on BBC’s “Frozen Planet” | Watts Up With That?

Yep, keep drinking the koolaid.

You're living in a world that is the product of scientific observation, but you won't accept scientific observations that you don't want to believe in.
