Climate Change Ranks Bottom Of Concerns In UN Poll

The UN runs a global survey, called My World, more details here.
It seems that, from the list they provide, climate change ranks bottom of people’s concerns.
When we break the figures down between rich and poor countries, there is a difference which highlights the green hypocrisy we often see in the West. (HDI is the Human Development Index, which takes into account life expectancy, education, and income per capita.)
In the poorer countries, climate change remains a very insignificant problem, even though we are repeatedly told that it is those very countries who will suffer most. In the richer nations though, climate change rises up the list, though still a relatively unimportant issue.
I think these polls say an awful lot about the hypocrisy and selfishness of some in the West, who wish to impose their own liberal ideas and values on those living in the developing world, and in doing so ignore the very real problems they face there.
