So, Do Americans Really Give A Damn About “Climate Change”?

Here’s the Washington Post

The global warming conundrum has been on full display over the past 24 hours. Even as one of the nation’s most prominent climate scientists has decided to retire in order to become a full-time activist, a new Pew Research poll suggests public interest and intensity with the issue is waning.

Only 42% say it’s because Someone Else refuses to go carbon neutral (ie, Mankind’s fault). This is up a bit from a few years ago, because people become believers when it gets hot. Europeans aren’t buying it that much after yet another freaking cold winter and no signs of spring.

According to the advocates at Yale, people are concerned

Researchers divided the U.S. population into six categories — alarmed, concerned, cautious, disengaged, doubtful and dismissive — based on their attitudes toward climate change. As of September 2012, the largest audience segment is the concerned group, the 29 percent of Americans who are “moderately certain” climate change is occurring and is human-caused. The smallest audience segment is the dismissive group, the 8 percent of Americans who are certain global warming is not occurring. Between 2010 and 2012, the number of Americans alarmed about global warming increased by 6 percentage points while the number of dismissive Americans decreased by 8 percentage points.

Here’s what Yale sees as global warming

See? Because you drove an SUV you made it hot and cold! Well, mostly hot, to the tune of a whopping .28 degree F rise from 1990-2012. And no global temp change in over 15 years. Dooooom!!!!!!yawn!!!!!!!

    The whole debate has made me question some of the most profound of scientific observations. You can not pick up Scientific American without some reference to climate change, yet as you follow the links and the logic, these proves to be nothing of substance. Yet if you just look at the initial offering or headline, then you would be convienced that the world is coming to an end. I have taken this on to many health care concerns, namely salt and dietary fats and found that there are false concepts that are represented as absolutes. We would expect this back in the 1700’s with the defense of blood letting and leaches, but you would think that science has become more objective, it has not. Recently in medicine, we have come up with the concept of evidence based medical care, yet even this concept has been corrupted by moneyed interest.

    To me, from our president who can never tell the truth to scientist that have an agenda that has little to do with improving humanity, makes me think that our world is moving to a very violent point in history that will make WWII look like play war.

    Could be David. Could be.
    When science becomes purely socialist propaganda tool, then can any science be trusted? Can any government action be trusted? They’ve lied to us over the last 50 years in order to push a specific anti-American agenda.
