Take The NY Times Climate Deplorables Quiz!

Here’s a really fun one, via Eric Worrall at What’s Up With That?

h/t Schrodinger’s Cat How much of a climate deplorable are you? NYT has published an offensive climate quiz, apparently aimed at helping readers discover whether they should ever buy another copy of the New York Times.

The quiz is here, and, just like Eric, and probably every person in the comments, I ended up with

You did a very bad job protecting the environment and may have made many of the worst effects of climate change more likely. It could hardly have been worse.

On the upside for President Trump, Republicans in Congress and many of the people who voted for him will support most of your decisions. We guess it’s true what they say about dark clouds (something about silver linings?).

I opted to

  • scrap the Clean Power Plan, because it’s bad for the lower and middle classes. The quiz told me the planet won’t like that
  • Not defend the CPP. I’m bad
  • I tell the EPA not to defend it. I’m still bad
  • Approve the permit for Keystone XL. Some people won’t be happy!
  • Cancel the Paris climate accord. Cities, states, and some businesses might still honor it. That’s their problem
  • Cancel the new Montreal Accord extension on refrigerators and AC units, along with one on airlines. I’m still bad
  • Cancel the subsidies on wind and solar. This is hilarious, because the question basically says that neither can survive without those subsidies from Government
  • Continue fracking. Many enviroweenies will be upset, and will take fossil fueled trips to protest

So, I did a very bad job in protecting the Cult of Climastrology.

Let’s think about this: the NY Times is supposed to be one of the premiere news services in the world. This is straight up partisan activism.

    The NYT and the leftists no longer set the popular agenda.
    Hell, the media still hasn’t figured out why Trump won.

  2. Jeffery says:

    I did “pretty well”, but was informed that Republicans and the gas/oil industry would not be pleased with me. Good.

    LOL.. I did horrible. If most people answered as I did, then there’s hope for us all.
