Driver-Pressure-State-Impact-RESPONSE? (DPSIR)

Interesting to note that a recent opinion poll on Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper website reveals that out of 3085 votes, 52,9% of all voters think that the Government of Kenya is RESPONSIBLE for the current famine in parts of Kenya.

There must be a reason why the folks over at the DN were asking for responsibility (per se) instead of the actual cause of that famine.
