Big Green At Work?

This one is a toss up between Media Bias and Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming hysteria. I'm calling it both.

First, the media bias: See what a difference one little word can make? If we only use the word "only", we can make it sound so much worse.

Survey finds 2 per cent of Canadians don't believe climate change is happening

Only 2 per cent of Canadians don’t believe in climate change: survey

Of course there couldn't possibly have been any vested interest behind this survey, either, - could there?

From the Leader Post:
"The findings are in a survey conducted by Insightrix Research, Inc. for IPAC-CO2 Research Inc., a Regina-based centre that studies carbon capture and storage.

The online poll of 1,550 people was done between May 29 and June 11. The results were to be released on Wednesday.

"Our survey indicates that Canadians from coast to coast overwhelmingly believe climate change is real and is occurring, at least in part due to human activity," said centre CEO Carmen Dybwad."
Or maybe I'm not permitted to call attention to who commissioned and, presumably, paid for the survey. That's something only leftard environuts are allowed to do. And they don't even need to provide evidence of their claim that "Big (Bad) Oil" is funding deniers.

And good on us Prairie folk:
"According to the survey, Prairie respondents are least likely to believe that climate change is occurring due to human activity, while residents of Quebec, Atlantic Canada and British Columbia are most likely to hold this belief.

The survey found 44 per cent of Quebec respondents, 34 per cent of Atlantic Canadian respondents and 32 per cent of those surveyed in British Columbia are likely to believe climate change is occurring due to human activity. Alberta and Saskatchewan came in at 21 per cent while Manitoba was at 24 per cent."
