Climate Change Not Polling Well With Farmers, Albertans

The Cult of Climastrology has previously trotted out a talking point that we should listen to the farmers, because they are supposedly on the front lines, having to deal with the changing of planting and picking seasons. Well, what do they have to say?

(Farm Pulse) Want proof that the climate change debate has become politicized in the United States? Look no further than a Nov. 2015 survey by the Pew Research Center.

The group asked Americans if they believe global climate change is a “very serious problem.” While 68% of democrats said it was, only 20% of republicans did. Pew also asked respondents if climate change is harming people now, and 53% of democrats versus 24% of republicans agreed.

A month later, Farm Journal Pulse asked farmers the exact same question: “Do you think climate change is a serious problem?” A total of 1,783 answered, with 78% saying no and 22% saying yes.

Huh. Here’s what it looks like

So much for 25+ years of scaremongering spreading awareness.

(CBC) The NDP’s new climate change plan is not going over well with Albertans, according a survey released Monday by Mainstreet-Postmedia.

The poll suggests 68 per cent of Albertans are opposed to the overall strategy, 22 per cent are in favour and 10 per cent are undecided.

The introduction of a carbon tax was opposed by 66 per cent of respondents.

Now, why would they be against a carbon tax?

The carbon tax on industry is expected to raise $3 billion a year, to be reinvested in renewable energy sectors and cover increased costs to consumers.

But the strategy will be paid for not only by industry, but by ordinary Albertans.

The province estimates the carbon tax will amount to roughly $470 in increased heating, electricity and transportation costs for an average household in 2018.

The Cult’s policies have real world implications for people. Negative ones. And will certainly do more harm to the middle and lower classes. Only in the big city of Edmonton does a carbon tax poll above water, 45% approving, 41% against. Calgary goes 33 for and 70 against. Overall, outside the cities, just 18% support a carbon tax.

I guess they do not want to be like Ontario, which “invested” tens of billions in “green” energy, and now cannot provide basic services, they’ve seen energy costs spike, and are on the verge of bankruptcy.

    The Alberta farmers are probably hoping that it will warm up in the Great White North
    Teach Pew is considered the Gold
    Standard in polling. But you chose not to provide a link to it
    Was this because in the USA it shows over 60% of Americans believe the Earth is warming ( no pause?)
    In the USA people do not consider it a life or death problem however human beings libidinous a marginalized life in other countries do
    Teach how much do you care about the effects of climate change upon them ?

    Not to mention 4.5 billion that the Prime Minister promised to pay third world leaders, dictators and despots per year.
    Divide that up by 10 to 15 million taxpayers per year.

    Not think of the extra distructive power that this will provide those leaders to inforce their will on their people.

  4. Teach how much do you care about the effects of climate change upon them ?

    That’s a good, though deflectionary, point. The answer is “not much.” The weather is always going to change. Life on earth is not static. I’m much more concerned over real environmental issues, something you Warmists do not seem to care about. And I’m more concerned with the welfare of me, my friends and family, and country, rather than a silly political proposition you fascists push, yet refuse to change your own lives in accordance with your beliefs.

    OMG, you caught a poster in a hilarious “word completion” faux pas on their cell phone!! Kudos.

    And you went to the trouble to look up and relate the meanings of libidinous!

    And you included name-calling! That’s a trifecta. It’s clearly your best work for the month.

    William – Fortunately policy does not always follow polling. It’s called leadership. Over 90% of Americans support strong, national background checks for obtaining firearms, but the Republicans show leadership by refusing!

    Thanks for caring, lil’ one.

    In fact, Canada (and Russia) could benefit in the short run from global warming as some of their more northerly regions open up. On the other hand they may also be overrun by climate refugees.

    The current (past century) increase seen in the average global temperature is not a changing weather event, is not “natural” and will have consequences, some unforeseen.

    You say “life on Earth is not static”, yet the average global temperature has been stable since the end of the last glacial period – an epoch, The Holocene, when all human civilizations evolved and flourished. The concern is that as global warming drives the Earth unnaturally and rapidly out of the stable Holocene, that it will be difficult for 10 billion humans and their infrastructures and institutions to peaceably adjust.

    Food production will change, water supplies will change, “normal” daytime highs will continue to increase making some regions uninhabitable, flora and fauna (including pests and disease vectors) will continue to redistribute, sea level will continue to rise and increase in rate, weather extremes will continue to increase (stronger storms, droughts, deluges – see Chennai India lately). If the Earth warms several degrees F, than all bets are off. Human civilization as we know it will not survive. Perhaps that is your god’s plan to start over. Pockets of hardy humans rebuilding from scratch.

    >Comment by Jeffery

    There is a lot of “will” ‘s. in your reply.
    These comments have been made since the 1980’s.
    Yet currently you cannot sail through the North West passage, dispite claims to the contrary.

    >On the other hand Canada may also be overrun by climate refugees.
    I will put a sign out in in the snow in front of my home to welcome climate refugees, however, i do not expect any takers anytime soon.

    AGW supporters are good at making forcasts but bad at reporting current world temperatures and the 20th century adverage temperature that we are paying to prevent going over by 4 degrees 2 degrees. 1.5 degrees!
    If you know them please post. i would appreciate it.
    Thank You.
