is it accurate?

I hope like hell that this survey is right on the money. I always hoped that radical environmentalists would damage their own cause with all the fear-mongering and dire threats that never panned out.

You can convince a lot of people to eat bullshit, but you've got to vary the diet every now and then to keep your sheeple interested. The "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!" mantra grew stale long ago. But big-time environmental groups and rabid, foaming moonbats such as Al Gore keep shovelling the same crap. People are just not eating it the way they once did.

Face facts. If you're gonna shovel bullshit, provide some FRESH bullshit for a change.


not a surprise. Sure, most people appreciate clean air and drinkable water, but the size of their wallet and the safety of their kids mean a hell of a lot more to them.

I don't get your point Acidman. It says 80% of the public think we need rules and probably need stronger protections. That puts the skeptics in a tiny minority.

Where's the effect of fear mongering? It's no surprise it's not top on the list of anyone's concerns considering what a bloody mess we're in right now.

I'm a pretty big enviro-girl and it's not even on the top of my agenda. We're not all PETA or ELF freaks you know.

Yea, it's rather unfair to give the choice between the economy, national defense, your wallet, and the environment. Honestly, all I care about is the economy and keeping this country in good shape, but that entails (among other things) taking care of what's given us.

It's not an "either, or", it's an "and". Unfortunately, most people, and politicians, don't see it that way.
