UK - New Poll shows only 20% Are AGW Believers

The Guardian reports on an Ipsos Mori Poll on people's views on climate change reports that only 20% of respondents between 16 to 64 years old believe in man-made global warming. This is down from 33% a year ago .
 Similar drops in belief have been reported from the US. These polls show up the continuing disconnect between Government policies and the voters on the Global Warming issue. There will now be the usual rash of"we didn't explain it well enough" stories -but I would say  it was explained well enough ,just not enough to pass the public's BS meter. The Guardian also notes that the 20% figure is  probably high as people over 65 were excluded.from the survey.
