We're apparently more afraid of cow flatulence than Russia now:
Bottom Line: The fine folks at the Pew Research Center surveyed world-wide as to what our biggest fears currently happen to be. The question was asked: Do you think (topic) is a major threat to our country?
So here are the concerns we have in order from least to most:
- Excessive Refugees: 36%
- Global economy: 37%
- China: 41%
- Russia: 47%
- Global Climate Change: 56%
- Cyber attacks: 71%
- ISIS: 74%
Btw, anyone have any questions for those who wouldn't cite ISIS as a major threat (given that more in 1 in 4 adults answered that way)? Anyway, now you can see how some potentially view cow flatulence as a greater concern than Putin. As an aside, that probably doesn't bode well for the media's fake Trump, Russia collusion stories. That also doesn't bode well for the cows, or people either I guess.
On one hand climate change is real and always has been. We've had multiple mass extinction events that ironically enough predate people. Periods of extreme heat and ice ages. The climate is always changing. Always has and always will. That's proven science. But on the other hand, you have the current perpetrators of methane gas and climate change fear advancing the idea that you're an existential threat the the viability of the planet (pretty much just by existing, let alone what your actions might lead to). They've apparently been so successful that even Putin isn't viewed to be as potentially dangerous as a cow that just loaded up on a pile of hay.
