What if action on climate change is impossible in a democracy?

A great piece by Mallen Baker which was posted 8 Jun 2015 which I wanted to share with you:

A recent YouGov survey has highlighted the fact that in the US and UK there is a significant percentage of people who “do not agree to any international agreement that addresses climate change.” In China, the position was quite different, with negligible numbers thinking the same. This was reported in the Independent as “UK and US main barriers to addressing climate change” which really doesn’t get us to the heart of what’s going on here.

For a start, because it was written up by a UK paper it didn’t actually include the full story. It wasn’t just the US and the UK – significant numbers of citizens in Norway, Finland and Sweden also wanted to avoid the topic.
