Survey questioned

The widely varying responses by neighbourhood of Lana Popham’s door-to-door survey suggests to me it is not accurate

The widely varying responses by neighbourhood of Lana Popham’s door-to-door survey suggests to me it is not accurate. I doubt very much that the neighbourhoods listed have very divergent views on topics that aren’t local to the neighbourhood, such as public education, health care and food security.

Good reporting on her survey would include complete detail of her questions on hotly debated topics like climate change. For example, a simple “Are you concerned about climate change?” will probably return more Yes answers than “Do you think humans are causing climate change?” and “Will you sacrifice your family’s health and mobility to reduce your consumption of fossil fuels?”.

Climate is always changing – adaptation takes effort, and professional surveys show far from everyone believes the alarmism that Popham does.
