‘You’re from another world!’ When confronted with polling data, save Britain from humiliation.
A angry LBC caller attacked INSULATE BRITAIN activist Liam Norton, accusing him of coming from “another planet.”
As an explanation for the group’s interruption of motorways, the Insulate Britain activist cited a new poll showing that concerns about climate change, the environment, and pollution rose to the top of the agenda as the Cop26 meeting took place in Glasgow. A enraged caller, on the other hand, slammed Liam Norton as someone who “lived in the real world.” He chastised the group for distracting people from the climate crisis.
“We’ve seen a poll by Ipsos MORI that was issued yesterday that showed climate is now the number one concern for UK citizens,” Mr Norton told LBC.
Rob, the caller, chimed in: “That’s nonsense! You’re on another planet, I tell you!” In the actual world, that isn’t the first thing that comes to mind.
“We’re not a bunch of scumbags who don’t know what they’re talking about. We all attempt to contribute our fair share. It’s just that the manner you’re going about it isn’t enticing folks to join your cause.” In Ipsos MORI’s problems index in November, four out of ten individuals thought climate, environment, and pollution were a serious issue for Britain, the highest ever score for the topic since it was introduced in October 1988.
Environmental concerns have risen 16 percentage points since October, surpassing the pandemic, Brexit, the NHS, and the economy as the nation’s top concerns this month.
It’s only the third time in more than 30 years that the environment has topped polls as one of the most significant issues confronting the country.
Environmental concerns were cited by more than a fifth of people (21%) as the single most important issue for the country, the highest of any issue, according to the survey of 1,009 British adults conducted as the UN climate summit and protests over climate action dominated the headlines earlier this month.
The polling demonstrates that both Labour and Conservative supporters are concerned about the climate, the environment, and pollution, and that concern is similar across social classes.
However, the over-55s are most concerned about the environment, with 47 percent citing it as a key issue, compared to 43 percent of those aged 35-54 and only slightly more than a quarter (27 percent) of those aged 18 to 34. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
