Surprising it's that many

"Only a quarter of UK population concerned about climate change", says The Ecologist. More specifically, a survey conducted by Ipsos MORI found that only a quarter of Britons believe climate change is one of the most important environmental issues facing the UK today.

The Ecologist calls this "ambivalence", demonstrating once again that the Greenies are totally out of touch. In reality, climate change has dropped so far off the radar that you would have to go ferreting around in the Challenger Deep to find a spark of interest round here. Indifference doesn't even begin to describe it.  People don't even make jokes about it any more.

By contrast, we are told, in Asian countries like India, South Korea and Japan, 50 percent of those polled consider climate change to be one of the most important environmental issues. Well, that's their problem. Nothing to do with us Guv. Although, I'll bet the little Ipsos MORI wonks didn't do much polling around Fukushima.
