And if you go to my post you will see I am arguing that the majority (i.e. over 50%) accept climate change and there is nothing in that study which suggests otherwise. Heck, the study may not even show that more than 50% don’t believe in climate change as you claim, because of how the question was worded and no numbers given for what could be several other answers as part of the study. I can’t fully say anything about how the study was conducted in terms of the question leading, but the article speaks consistently of “fully certain” which suggests the possibility of other answers which are still suggesting they believe in climate change.
It’s quite ludicrous to use this to make assertive claims about how the public are not believing in climate change. Meanwhile, I had a look at Dynata’s 2020 global trends study. It had around 80% saying that humans cause climate change.
So, in short, the study doesn’t necessarily show what you think it shows, if it did, it doesn’t give any evidence to your original claims. My point is that the majority think climate change is a thing, as is the case with most polls and surveys. If one disagrees it’s not necessarily incorrect, but it would be an outlier, unless the results become more consistent throughout the surveys. It’s hardly ludicrous to point this out when you have tried to make out that you’re more accepting than most.
It’s quite pointless having a discussion who cannot engage with reasonable querying. You are quite simply not interested in anything sensible, as is the case here where reasonable querying is met with ridiculous incredulity, as if you think no-one should dare question your eminence,.
