YOU NEED MORE SCARY TALES ON GW

The government have seen the recent polls showing that the majority of the UK population do not believe the current scare over global warming, so they are embarking on new even scarier adverts on prime TV slots see - this article for details. I wonder if this kind of propaganda will work? If the message is at odds with the experience of those receiving it then it is likely to lead to even greater cynicism and outright derision. People today are just not that easily deceived.
