Oh Noes: Latest Poll Shows More Americans Are Concerned About Global Warming

Obviously, this totally upholds what the Cult of Climastrology are pushing

(Clean Technica) Opinions are like noses — everyone has one. While opinions aren’t really worth much — I am of the opinion that I am one of the world’s best writers, for instance, but few share that view — they are important indicators of how people may vote in upcoming elections. In a poll conducted by the Yale Program On Climate Change Communication and the Center for Climate Change Communications at George Mason University entitled “Climate Change In The American Mind, October 2017,” respondents indicated a heightened awareness of climate change issues and an elevated level of concern for the future. The Executive Summary reproduced below tells the story in detail.

The big takaway?

Seven in ten Americans (71%) think global warming is happening, an increase of eight percentage points since March 2015. Only about one in eight Americans (13%) think global warming is not happening. Americans who think global warming is happening outnumber those who think it is not by more than 5 to 1.

Here’s the problem: the question asked makes no reference to causation. From page 29 of the poll we see

Recently, you may have noticed that global warming has been getting some attention in the news. Global warming refers to the idea that the world’s average temperature has been increasing over the past 150 years, may be increasing more in the future, and that the world’s climate may change as a result.

What do you think: Do you think that global warming is happening?

By not defining this as anthropogenic, natural, or some mix, they intentionally set up a situation where they get an answer they want, and then can use that as PROOF that they are right, and we need to Do Something (usually involving taxes, fees, and restricted liberty and freedom). However, most Skeptics would answer “yes”. I would. Because we have had global warming. Even if Warmist scientists have over-estimated the actual warming, there has been warming. Because this is what happens. You have periods of warmth and periods of cool. We’ve seen this throughout the Holocene.

We do learn that 54% in this survey believe it is mostly caused by Humans. Again, though, how much? 51%? 100%? What they do not ask is what Believers are willing to do in their own lives to help stop it.

We also learn that idiots actually believe it has made extreme weather worse, which is scientifically false. And

Large majorities of Americans think of global warming as an environmental (78%), scientific (71%), agricultural (66%), severe weather (65%), health (62%), economic (60%), or political issue (60%). Fewer think it is a moral (41%), national security (29%), poverty (28%), social justice (26%), or religious issue (9%).

More and more are understand that this is a political issue. Back to Clean Technica

Will these opinions have an impact on American politics? The next Congressional elections are now less than a year away. If Americans continue to support climate change deniers when they vote, opinion polls like this one will be relevant only to those who make their living designing, conducting, and interpreting polls. If the news media won’t tell Americans about climate science, it becomes incumbent on each of us individually to spread the word and sound the alarm.

Typically, when Warmists push these issues, and even pass them, they lose at the polls. Because, remember the old saying “everyone talks about the weather but no one does anything about it”? Well, all these Warmists talk about ‘climate change’, but few of them ever do anything in their own lives about it. And few are willing to pay more than a few bucks to Do Something about it. They’re fine with Someone Else paying the piper. Never themselves.

    From the article:

    a third of the people polled believe climate change is related to natural causes.

    A third of Americans also think Dotard tRump is doing a good job. Coincidence? We doubt it.
