Leftists and friends make a big stink out of climate change whenever they get the chance (see Bernie Sanders Compared Climate Change to… 9/11?). It would seem the left thinks the more they harp about climate change, the more “real” it gets. Sort of like Amy Schumer and her “crazy” “sex life.” So when the UN ran a global poll to see what concerns the people of the world the most, they got a bit of shock…
Global warming ranks dead last among a host of important issues that people across the world worry about, according to a yearly survey conducted by the United Nations.
The survey, which records millions of viewpoints, found that people worldwide are more concerned about acquiring a “good education,” and “better healthcare,” as well as finding “better job opportunities.”
Surprise! Global warming/cooling/climate change didn’t make the cut. Turns out when it comes to world issues, people care more about… Well, anything else. They prioritize things that can affect their lives on a day to day basis. Probably also helps if said issue is a real one. Not simply a soapbox talking point for gasbags at award ceremonies.
This comes as a slap in the snotty faces of western leftists. Over here climate change takes center stage, especially among the Democrat, uptown guys and gals (see John Kerry Idiotically Claims Climate Change as Dangerous as ISIS…). Meanwhile other issues, like crime or national debt, take a backseat… Because melted ice caps are more important. Think of the polar bears!
The most important part of all this? It’s embarrassing for leftists. I call that a win. It shows just how out of touch they really are when it comes to gauging the issues of non-rich, non-politician humans. But “Save the polar bears” sounds better than “We were wrong. Again.”
At least climate change isn’t a real thing, so leftists have that going for them. One less thing to “worry” about…
