Default Help Me Out....

Ok I need everyone I possibly can here to take this survey. I shouldn't take long at all. It's on the issues of global warming and things along that line. If you want to private message me your answers or email them to me (chrono_chamber@yahoo.com) either would be good or you can just reply here if you don't care about others seeing your answers. Theres nothing personal in the survey just need some opinions. This is for a class I have and I have to write a paper on the results I find.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is your age?

Are you male or female?

How well do you agree with the following statement:
1 strongly disagree 2 somewhat disagree 3 somewhat agree 4 strongly agree 0 don’t know


Overall commitment to the issue
• The planet is getting warmer
• Humans are causing global climate change
• Global warming is a serious threat

Nature:
• Nature can take care of itself, but within limits
• Humans have the right to manipulate nature for economic gain
• Humans have the right to manipulate nature for our survival
• We have an obligation to take care of nature
• Humans do not have the right to damage nature
• Humans are a part of nature

Religion:
• God will take care of global warming
• Global warming is part of God’s plan
• We have a moral obligation to care for God’s creation
• My religious beliefs influence my view of global warming
• My personal views of climate change differ from my religious teachings

Capitalism
• The consumer lifestyle is in conflict with natural processes
• The market will take care of the problem
• Efforts to stop global warming will hurt the economy
• Efforts to stop global warming will create new jobs

Greenhouse effect:
• Humans are producing greenhouse gasses that are warming the planet
• The greenhouse affect is a myth
• Global warming is natural
• The greenhouse affect will cause more severe storms
• The greenhouse effect will cause flooding
• Global warming is caused by destroying the ozone layer

Individualism
• Efforts to reduce global warming will restrict my personal freedoms
• We have a moral obligation to care for poorer people who will be affected by global warming
• My personal behavior does not affect the environment
• I care about nature

Politics; scapegoating; media personalities
• Global warming is a political issue
• We should not act on global warming until we know more about it
• The world is doing a good job in general
• Global warming is a myth created by liberals
• Politics can help the issue of global warming
• Governments/political leaders/experts don’t know what they are talking about

Other
• This is the way things are supposed to be
• Nature is naturally changing (naturally getting warmer)
• Technology can fix the problem
• I care about the issue of global warming
• I do what I can to help prevent/fix the problem

Put any comments you have about global warming or any of the items mentioned above here:

Put any comments you have about global warming or any of the items mentioned above here:

- i think the religious view is pointless because this is a REAL problem, and reality has nothing to do with religion
- i think if there are really people who still doubt the warming this will paint a very poor picture of their intellect
- i think i know what i'm talking about since i read books and serious articles about it (instead of just believing what is on tv) and talked to someone who actually researched this problem in antarctica
- there is a natural global warming but in this case it's not to blame since we're talking about totally different dimensions (gah i could hold a speech about this haha)
ok that's it so far i guess, i don't have any problems with making my opinions public (apparently haha)
