More Than 310 Thousand People with Skewed Priorities Flood New York

The numbers are rolling in…and they’re impressive in a odd way. Based on numerous news reports, somewhere in the neighborhood of 310 to 400 thousand people participated in the People’s Climate March on Sunday, September 21, 2014 in New York City.  The parade was, of course, a precursor for the U.N. Climate Summit 2014, which begins tomorrow.

Yet the results of the U.N.’s Global Survey for a Better World, also known as MyWorld2015, show “Action taken on Climate Change” at the very bottom…the abyss…of things that matter most to families around the globe. See the screencap below. If you haven’t had your say, you can take the survey here.

MyWorld2015 Poll Results Sept 22 2014

Looks like the 310 to 400 thousand people who marched in Manhattan yesterday have priorities that are out of touch with the rest of the occupants of this lovely planet.

Considering the object of the U.N. meeting, maybe the marchers should have been calling for “honest and responsive government“, which ranked much higher than climate.

  3. I think they´ll need help getting organized to achieve whatever they want.

    I´ll give you an impression I got because I like to exchange ideas with individuals in that community…

    Some are very intelligent and educated, and seem to have very straightforward proposals (a carbon tax comes to mind). But some of them are way out in lala land. For example, there are strong advocates of vegetarianism to fight global warming.

    Some are communists who blame capitalism for the CO2 concentration. Others are convinced the planet is about to get flooded by giant tsunamis, or that temperature is about to exceed that horrible 2 degree C threshold by 2036 (I think they must have been reading Dr. Mann´s article in Scientific American). It´s a mixed bag.

  4. Thanks, Bob.
    So, the “left” think humans control the climate via CO2 emissions.
    Nothing new.

    “The Fickle El Niño of 2014”

    Not what they were saying earlier this year.

    Hi Bob,

    I’m not sure if you’re familiar with Mark Sponsler of He’s been doing a very thorough ENSO review on a weekly basis in a series of videos on youtube. You’ll need to forward to ~11:08 to see his Nino review/forecast.

    Check him out; he’s *quite* good:

    Thanks for the link, n/a. You’re right. Very good.
