According to the United Nations’ yearly poll that ranks people’s greatest worries, action on climate change comes in dead last. That’s across all countries and groups, all genders, all education levels, and all age groups. At the top of the list was a “good education” and “better healthcare” followed by “better job opportunities.” Climate change is such a non-issue that it was never brought up by the moderators during the three 2016 Presidential Debates.

The U.N. poll is unique in that it records the views of millions of people from all countries and from all walks of life. In fact, more than three times of respondents are more concerned about education, and twice as many are worried over healthcare.

The poll recorded 9,731,210 respondents (and counting) across the world.

Wealthier nations want climate action

It is only when the poll is broken down between rich countries and poor countries do we see any movement on climate change. In rich countries like the United States, fighting climate change goes up about six notches, just above “better job opportunities.” Poorer countries rank battling climate change last. The poll is divided into 16 major need areas.

The results are consistent with recent Gallup and Pew Research polls that show concern about climate change comes in as one of the lowest worries for people.

The poll shows that in rich countries, where basic education (K-12) is free and health care is readily available, fighting climate change simply isn’t a barn-burner issue. Meanwhile, poorer countries are decidedly anxious about getting a good education and better healthcare.

Fixing climate a non-problem

Currently, governments are spending trillions of taxpayer dollars to address what a majority of people from across the planet consider a non-problem.

Even green groups must be dismayed by the abysmal ranking of climate change after sending out super-celebs like Leonardo DiCaprio to preach the global warming gospel. The poll comes at a time when the U.N. and environmentalists are doggedly working to demonize fossil fuels in order to replace them with unreliable, intermittent renewables.

You can vote, too

The U.N. is using the Paris Climate Agreement, signed by 190 countries, to hamper developing nations from using cheap, abundant fuels to lift them out of poverty. The U.N. poll is not considered a “scientific” poll as it relies on people pledging to vote only once.

Voting is still open at the U.N.’s My World 2015.
