The Midterms Could See A Groundswell Of Climate Change Voters Or Something

The Cult of Climastrology keeps thinking, hoping, wishing, that ‘climate change’ is suddenly going to make a difference at the ballot box and sweep in politicians who will take the scam seriously and implement all sorts of draconian, Big Government, authoritarian rules, regulations, and law. Keep dreaming, guys

‘We need some fire’: climate change activists issue call to arms for voters
Campaigners say more than 15m people who care about the environment did not vote in the 2014 midterms – can they create a ‘green wave’ this November?

No.

Among the motivating issues for voters in US elections, the environment is typically eclipsed by topics such as healthcare, the economy and guns. But the upcoming midterms could, belatedly, see a stirring of a slumbering green giant.

“The environmental movement doesn’t have a persuasion problem, it has a turnout problem,” said Nathaniel Stinnett, the founder of the Environmental Voter Project, which is aiming to spur people who care about the natural world and climate change to the ballot box. “This group has more power than it realizes. In the midterms we want to flood the zone with environmentalists.”

Any such voting surge would go some way to heeding the increasingly urgent warnings from scientists about climate change. A major UN climate report released this week said the world risks worsening floods, droughts, species loss and poverty without “rapid and far-reaching transitions” to energy, transport and land use.

Americans of voting age who care strongly about the environment have been unusually reticent to make their voice heard, for reasons that are still unclear. Stinnett said demographics are part of it – the young, Latinos and black people are simultaneously most worried about climate change and least likely to vote – but this doesn’t explain the full story.

“It’s hard to figure out why,” he said. “Even among young people, for example, environmentalists are less likely to vote. The environmental movement has done a lot of things to change the way we eat, travel and work, but it hasn’t flexed its political muscles yet.

It’s easy to figure out. Poll after poll after poll show that ‘climate change’ is a minor care amongst all voters. It typically ranks right there among the bottom 2-3 issues. And the younger voters who are targeted have historically not bothered to show up at the ballot box. Even doomsaying climate change can’t drive them, because they say they care, but their belief is not particularly strong. There’s little adherence, as it is termed in Political Science.

A year prior, no questions on climate change were put to Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton during three presidential debates. Trump has subsequently ignored the issue in office, save the odd disparaging tweet, while overseeing an administration that has systematically dismantled climate, air and water pollution regulations.

And virtually no Democrats are talking about it now. No one really cares. This is what all the spreading awareness since 1988 has wrought: no one really cares, except the elites who are trying to create a more authoritarian government.

    We need to overthrow the government of the United States under Donald Trump

    Alec Baldwin in his latest speech.

    Communism/socialism/Globalism is alive and well in the democratic party. Fascism and Nazi’s rule of law is what they covet. Shut down any debate and free speech by the left. DENY them the rights they themselves violently covet for themselves.

    Unless and until sanity returns to the left they should be denied majority rule at all costs from sea to shining sea.

    Climate change hysteria is just another of the long list of examples of how unhinged the leftist have become. On a side note Angela Merkels party in Bavaria just got slaughtered in elections by the nationalist Right movement sweeping Europe.

    This and so many other signs pointing toward the lefts long, long march to gaining the ultimate world wide power is what has them so mindlessly insane right now. Their careful plan of legislating, regulating and litigating is coming apart as the internet has shed light on their Corrupt effort of tyranny. And now the majority has awoken.

    A vote for Democrats is a vote for tyranny. Not voting is the same as saying you want to be RULED BY THE MOB.

    The “way we implement change in America is through elections,” Baldwin said Sunday evening at an annual fundraising dinner in Manchester for New Hampshire’s Democratic Party.

    “And in that orderly and formal way, and lawful way, we need to overthrow the government of the United States under Donald Trump.”

    Let’s overthrow the government of Donald Trump peacefully, lawfully and with extreme prejudice. Let’s make America great again, by making Donald Trump a casino operator again,” he added.

    • Mangoldielocks says:

      Have you heard me calling for the ::::::OVERTHROW:::::: of the democratic party?

      Words have meaning and connotations. He did not ask his fellow democrats to show up at the polls and to throw out the republicans with their vote.

      “In an orderly and formal way, and lawful way, we need to overthrow the government of the United States under Donald Trump,” Baldwin said Sunday night at a major fundraising dinner for New Hampshire’s Democratic Party.

      This is clearly inciteful and inflammatory rhetoric aimed at the hard core march in the street, set stuff on fire BASE of the Democratic party.

      Words have meanings and they have connotations that cannot be undone. Defend the moron if you like, If Trump said these EXACT WORDS about the democratic party…ver batim you would be having seizures all over your house and banging on your keyboard from now till doomsday.

    As easily predicted years ago, climate change “skeptics” (especially in gov’t – e.g., tRump, Senators) say it doesn’t really matter if global warming is natural or man-made, it’s just too danged expensive (in money and effort) to do anything about it! Brilliant!

    Recall:
    Stage 1 was denying it was warming at all.
    Stage 2 was recognizing the undeniable mountain of evidence and admitting that the Earth was warming, but was not from greenhouse gases.
    Stage 3 is admitting global warming results from man-made greenhouse gases but it is too expensive or troubling to do anything about it.

    Winning!

    • Mangoldielocks says:

      Isn’t that what democrats do? Pick an agenda and win at all costs.

      All costs. That is such an open ended statement and your right about one thing. I should have said something else. Just like Baldwin should have said something else. But I stand by mine. Denying DEMOCRATS POWER AT ALL COSTS is NOT THE SAME THING AS ANARCHY AND OVERTHROWING THE GOVERNMENT.

  4. Jethro says:

    The Dems do not support anarchy or overthrowing the government by violence. This is just the latest talking points from the GOP.

    As Baldwin said, the Dems should vote the Repubs out.

    We assume when you say “at all costs” you are just being hyperbolic and don’t mean that cheating, suppressing votes or violence would be acceptable.

    • I’ll agree that Dems do not support anarchy. They support an authoritarian version of government. Their views as Progressives, Marxists, Socialists, etc, are all versions where the government dictates all versions of our lives in all fashions.

      As far as violence, well, we’ve seen what Democrats have been doing for the past 20 years, starting with the riots at the WTO in Seattle.
