You don't make decisions based upon what a bunch of brainwashed kids think, there's a reason Labour wants the voting age reduced and this poll is a good example of the ignorance you have at that age.
"brainwashed" I think you're super naive and a halfwit who has know idea the amount of damage we have done to our home planet as it is already ad yet you call kids who have been informed for a long time about how our planet is going to change not for the better for the younger generation. Good why do people like you exist, I'd prefer people like you were extinct. Removed
Too many people. One hope is that plastic micro-particles continue to clog up the wedding tackles and prevent the problem worsening. We need campaign where tutting at people with more than 1 child becomes the norm. Also stop interfering with nature with comments such as "Come away from that cliff edge Darling! it looks dangerous".

Nil points for the creepy "population control" brigade, who never specify HOW they will achieve population reduction.
Not Creepy! au contraire - I set out my suggestions earlier: Too many people. One hope is that plastic micro-particles continue to clog up the wedding tackles and prevent the problem worsening. We need campaign where tutting at people with more than 1 child becomes the norm. Also stop interfering with nature with comments such as "Come away from that cliff edge Darling! it looks dangerous".

Plenty of stupid climate denying adults who don't understand the science, and plenty of smart kids.

Anyhow, this is more likely to have an adverse affect on their lives than ours.
You sound like a fascist Removed

The BBC’s Disinformation Reporter should examine the article.

Shame the young aren't so concerned about the disproportionate amount of Covid-spreading that, by all accounts, they seem to be doing.
Perhaps it is a good thing if they help to kill of the less educated older generations that are refusing to accept scientific reality? Win/win for the younger generations. Removed

Wrong: I'm older generation at 74 and fully espouse climate change beliefs, unlike many apparently in this blog. Stop this ageism when talking of causes. It does not help see the whole picture.
So some spotty little oik at age fourteen has deemed climate change a 'Global Emergency' and it's the biggest Global poll ever.

BBC, do one.

A poll of children just tells you what their teachers have told them.

All those claiming that this is poor journalism because the poll isn't representative. You managed to extrapolate the information needed to form your opinion so it can't have been that poor.

They almost never actually mention the problem

Too many blooming humans consuming far more than they need
& that's just the 20% developed world
The other 80% not consuming more than they need, want to because they want what the developed world has
Who can blame them?
Sadly see little in the future other than more conflict as more people want more resources which are rapidly dwindling
More people = more brain power = higher likelihood of a solution being found.

It would only take two or three geniuses (and I mean genuinely clever people) to solve the problem.

Just because you are an idiot who gobbles through resources with no benefit to humanity don't assume that everybody else falls into that category.
Not heard off Greta in a while... she alright??

Mind you, I suppose it takes a while for parents/agents and script-writers to come up with new material and then coach her in hw to deliver it.

Thought Biden would be having her over for tea on Day One! Then he could have indulged in his hobby too...

Greta has a much better grasp of English than yourself and she's from Sweden!
I wonder why the BBC is low level reporting the 3 consecutive days of anti lockdown riots in the EU?

If it was Trump related, it would be front and centre.

And the quiet "resistance movement of cafe and bar owners in Italy who are unilaterally opening their premises regardless.

I'm more interested in their not reporting the 'government' removing protection for the NHS from the Brexit trade bill the other day, or the imminent assault on workers' rights planned by Kwarteng, Hannan et al.

I'm not a denier but it sounds like this poll was targeted at a very limited demographic (14 to 18 year olds) and through gaming apps so it could predictably illicit the desired result. My reaction to the piece may have been different if the headline had been less misleading... for example... 64% of 14-18 year olds support 'global emergency'.

Definitely, SUVs should be available to only those living in places that need them. Flights limited to one short haul annually and a long haul every five years.

The problem is that the BBC actually harm the cause of environmentalism when they publish forced nonsense like this. Those who already loathe the BBC say: 'See!' Those who are perhaps not sure about global warming ask themselves 'Why do they need to mislead us.'
Because they are a part of the well oiled indoctrination machine of the left. They have suckered in more people than nazi Germany quicker than you can say "ww1 was the fault of the jews". Removed

Science certainly points to CC being real, but no proper scientist can and should call CC fact. It is the current best guess that will remain until proven otherwise

The fact that this article tries to link intelligence levels to acceptance of CC is indicative of modern left wing behaviour and conversely shows a limit to thinking and populist sheep like behaviour.

Not only that, temperatures have apparently been rising on Mars where no human has ever set foot.
We know that in the age of the dinosaurs 170million years ago Earth was much warmer than it is now with no humans around but 10000 years ago it was much colder when the only humans that existed were our primitive cave dwelling ancestors.
They don't like it when you remind them of all this though.

Downvotes are a good indicator of Trump supporters from State side on this HYS.

Still waiting for the realworld empirical climate science paper that gives irrefutable data which shows anthro co2 will cause a climate emergency.Surely Believers if the issue is beyond debate you can present the paper.

The Earth is being poisoned by Strontium Barium and Aluminium .Forests in California are dying right now because of this particulate poisoning accumulating in the soil and yet it is C02 we are told is the biggest threat.Check water and soil levels in your area for high amounts.

Dude its oxygen, not a zero. ????????????????

What was it I said:

"If a poster cannot even write the correct formula for carbon dioxide, it's pretty clear that they paid no attention whilst at school.

Invariably, such posts are from ill informed climate science deniers too which is unsurprising."

All my criticisms on this HYS have been levelled at the why in which the poll was conducted which in my opinion is of an unacceptably low standard. No where have I questioned climate change or AGW.
I am not arrogantly thinking without relevant qualifications. I regularly assess scientific data to determine its significance & relevance to how I may apply it in a practical situation.

Homeopathy at its best??

The CEngs that you despise were using models developed within academia. When you look at the qualifications they had across the team then you will find more than a couple of PhD, CEngs etc.

Yet your have complete **faith** on climate models that are billion times more complex. Like I said Homeopathy at its best??

Has the article incorrectly described how the information was obtained?
Please stop requesting details of publications by critics of the method of sampling. All you need do is to tell 'the doubters' why users of a computer ap. across only 26% of the worlds countries, of which c. 25% are 14 to 18 y.o. is a representative sample.
Targeting kids to see how kids think is valid, but not if you want to extrapolate to the wider population. That all depends on the percentages surveyed of each segment. When you have a massive disinterest like this one, then companies either (a) accept the loss (b) rephrase & republish. What they dont do is **push** an irrelevant percentage as a majority!

And what was your response rate and if you think they UNEP/Oxford Uni study which was also a team effort is inadequate feel free to publish your critique which is the standard advice to you when you criticise every study on the environment reported by thge BBC. 'Advising on throughput capacity' does that mean you were responsible for making the tea?
Much better than the flawed survey that you are defending.??

You posts today do highlight that you are just being a cuerile punt.

No matter I will ignore your puerile comments in future that you make about me. Youre not worth the effort

Just go away and look up the lead academic's expertise and experience in survey and statistics and try to reflect a little more maturely. Thanks.
