While More Voters Say They Care About Hotcoldwetdry, Will They Go To The Polls?

Well, in most votes, belief in Doing Something about anthropogenic climate change hasn’t driven people to the polls, except to vote against Doing Something. I doubt 2020 will be any different, but, the Cult of Climastrology can always hope

More voters than ever say the climate crisis is their top priority

A growing share of voters list climate and the environment as their top priority, according to a new poll from the Environmental Voter Project.

Of the registered voters surveyed, 14 percent named “addressing climate change and protecting the environment” their No. 1 priority over all other issues, compared with 2 to 6 percent before the 2016 presidential election.

Climate and environment voters are also the most motivated to vote in 2020, saying they are willing to wait in line an average of an hour and 13 minutes at the polls.

“There are almost 30 million climate voters out there who are already registered to vote. That’s a huge constituency,” said Nathaniel Stinnett, the founder of the project, which aims to identify inactive environmentalists and turn them into consistent activists and voters.

“That’s like four times the number of NRA members. It’s enormous, and a lot of that growth has happened over the last two to three years.”

ZOMG! More than the NRA!!!!!!

The poll compared survey responses to public voter file records and found that infrequent voters are more likely than frequent ones to assign a higher importance to climate and the environment.

That suggests environment advocates could benefit from getting more climate-minded voters to the polls with some easy fixes, such as awareness campaigns for early and absentee voting. A quarter of infrequent voters were not aware they could vote early, and 29 percent weren’t aware they could vote absentee. Voting by mail could also increase environment voter turnout.

Of course, when you explain to these infrequent voters that they’d be voting to raise their cost of living, cost of energy, take more money out of their pockets, and limit their freedom, liberty, and choice, that could change the dynamics. Because the Warmists pushing this stuff keep forgetting that ‘climate change’ is popular in theory, not in practice. And, if they think this is going to help defeat Donald Trump, well, good luck with that!

    So 24/7/365 propaganda by the media, movies, TV shows, TV ads, politicians, movies, late night comedians and teachers has made a significant dent in people’s ability to detect bull shit by it’s odor. Congratulations.

    The NRA works to maintain our second amendment rights against the same people who actually believe this climate warming nonsense and want our guns. How many gun owners are there? They too are an “enormous” number and they too seem not to vote as a block. Sadly.

    The next election is unlikely to be decided based on global warming.

    The corrupt NRA cares nada about your gun rights except as it may interfere with gun sales.

    I have several rifles (9), shotguns (5) and pistols (3), despise the corrupt NRA and will vote against every Republican.

    Remember when President Obama was going to end our gun rights? He didn’t did he?

    Neither will the next President, whether Biden, Sanders, Warren, Klobuchar or Buttigieg.

          Wow, that convinced me that the organization of the NRA is the worst organization on earth Thank you, Fredo. (sarc)

          Now if I had the energy I would google several leftist organizations that ARE NOT trying to support the Constitution but rather are trying to subvert it, point out their corruption (like that of the Democrat Party) and then state if that is off topic and ask, but is the earth warming mostly because of man or is man merely a minor contributor?

          If you own a gun and are not in the NRA you’re part of the problem. No person, no organization and no nation is perfect and if you are ignorant and brainwashed enough to think that only the organizations your political opponents support are not corrupt then you’re a fool, especially when they’re hauling off leftists and Democrats to the hoosegow almost daily. And you probably think Epstein killed himself too.

          Trump 2020 Because the left is so fukin pure it makes us look bad. Ask
          Biden, Epstein, Spacey, and Winestein just to start.

            Dildo,

            Who claimed that the NRA was the worst organization on Earth? They hired the convicted felon Oliver North as President and he was fired for trying to extort the slime CEO, Wayne Lapierre, who is under investigation for financial shenanigans.

            Anyway, we wouldn’t expect you to ever criticize and far-right, GOP affiliated organization. You even think Trump is great President, a fact that reflects badly on you, Dildo.

            We would think NRA members would hate to see their dues going to pay for girlfriends, fancy suits. Maybe not.

            Or maybe object to Russian spies infiltrating the organization to gain access to the administration. Maybe not.

            Do you have any evidence that Trump had Epstein killed? If you do, shouldn’t you report it to the FBI?

            You think the thrice-married, with at least 5 kids by 3 different baby mamas, serial philanderer, accused rapist, fake Christian, admitted sexual assaulter, who has paid women to deny having sex with him, accused pedophile, has bankrupted 6 companies, who lies constantly, is an unindicted co-conspirator for directing his attorney to pay women hush money (the attorney is in prison for it)… you think this man is pure. He’s a horrible person, even if he hadn’t solicited electoral help from Ukraine and China. Donald John Trump is a disgusting corksoaker, and America deserves better, and you can quote me.

            If you’re a member of the NRA you’re part of the problem. The NRA owns the GOP, for now. If you feel the NRA supports you, you’re a sucker. Shouldn’t the NRA pay taxes on all the money they get from members since they mainly lobby Congress for gunmakers?

            As was pointed out to you long ago, you may be the last person to deny that the Earth is warming. Kye believes it’s warming, as does Teach. In fact, the new talking point (you seemed to miss the memo) is: “Of course the Earth is warming – the Earth is always warming or cooling – but it’s not caused by CO2!” Savvy deniers changed their tune over the past few years.

    • formwiz says:

    And I doubt NRA members casre anything about what you think.

    They do? Seems like all the lobbyists go after the Demos, since they’re all on the take.

    • Kye says:

      I’m not going to argue with you about the NRA since anyone, even you, can look up the benefits of what the NRA does not only for the police but helping women and minorities learn responsible gun use for self defense. To my knowledge there has never been an NRA member that was a mass murderer in fact there have been thousands of times NRA members have saved innocent lives. I cannot help the weaknesses of NRA leaders any more than you can help the ugly sexual deviancy of leftists like Epstein or Winestein. And I no more support such corruption any more than you do. Sadly you can rattle off many ALLEGED wrongs by President Trump but completely blank out the ACTUAL rapes and abuses by guys with whom you agree politically.

      BTW, by now you should know the Steele dossier crap was paid for by Hillary which puts the accusation of teaming up with the Russians and/or Ukies squarely in the Democrats camp. But I’m not going to rehash the Mueller Investigation for another three years or until you commies like the outcome.

      If you support a murderous organization like Planned Parenthood you’re a sucker. Shouldn’t PP NOT get government subsidies since they are taking tax money to kill children? After all the NRA only gets tax breaks and the RTKABA is a Constitutional right while PP gets our hard earned CASH and abortion is not a Constitutional right. I think taxpayers should buy everyone who “chooses” to buy a firearm a new gun once a year. That would be fair. The good news is the majority of those using PP services are minorities and Democrats. The majority buying guns are the good guys.

      Trump 2020 Keep our RTKABA.

    Simple is the right word, and the article answered it quite nicely.

    And, as always, the truth is not what you want to hear, and the truth is, no, it isn’t.

    They have? News to me.

    And, what, exactly, is a “savvy denier”? Aside from someone who tells you what you want to hear?

    AFAIK neither Kye nor Teach believes it’s warming. If it were otherwise, Teach wouldn’t be running all those posts, so, once more you lie.

    And I haven’t heard any new talking point of how the Earth is warming.

    Except with a /sarc tag.

    • Kye says:

      “Kye believes it’s warming, as does Teach.”

      I don’t speak for Teach but as for myself I couldn’t be clearer and you quoted me: Of course the earth is warming, the earth is always warming or cooling. What that means (since I seem to need to explain it) is that it may be warming or cooling right now and either way I believe it but I question the amount and severity of man’s contribution to either since neither is a permanent state. And you may try your double talk with someone else because savvy as I am I was never a “denier” (nor was I ever a white supremacist) and have not “changed my tune” over the past few years about either.

      It really seems you try very, very hard to hear only what you want to hear and either ignore or twist the rest.

    ‘The 2012 opinion piece.” It wasn’t an opinion piece, it stated the facts, but nice try. ‘Is it warming..? Funny-as stated in the article, the alarmist group didn’t think it was warming, or warming enough, so they went from a starting point of 15C to 14C. Best to ask them if the settled science was 14C or 15C.

  8. Jl says:

    “You may be the last person to deny the earth is warming..”. Me, from yesterday, on this blog: “the earth has been warming since the end of the LIA.” You really should take that reading comprehension thing to heart, J. You need it.

      j,

      You also said it depends on what data you use and you linked an opinion piece that didn’t even mention the “Little Ice Age”.

      So which is it? Has the Earth warmed some 1C since the end of the “Little Ice Age”?

      BTW, the warming in the last century and a half is greater than any warming or cooling in the entire Holocene.

      BTW, when did the so-called Little Ice Age end? How low was the nadir compared to the mean of the previous thousand years or so? And how high do you think the current round of warming will go?

      You need to broaden your reading list beyond WUWT and The Trickster, J. You need it.

        One whole degree, huh? Out of a 500 hundred year period that isn’t even considered an ice age. Maybe that’s why it wasn’t included in the article.

        So in other words I never said it wasn’t warming, as you implied. It’s that old reading comprehension thing. “It didn’t mention the LIA”. Why would it? I was an article on the alarmists changing the earth’s temperature because nature wasn’t cooperating with their narrative. But what’s amusing is you asking me questions that your alarmist buddies don’t even seem to know. If it was warming as much a they said, why change the temp from 15C to 14C? You want an answer?

            Sorry, NTZ didn’t write the papers, again. Same old reading comprehension thing. I can show you how to clink on a link to find the author’s name, if you’d like-it really isn’t that hard

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          We’ve been through this more than once. Pierre Gosselin is a denier and he scans for bits of information to use as propaganda. The papers rarely support his overinterpretations. It’s suspicious that he never finds papers that don’t support his prejudices. It’s not my responsibility to read every paper a non-scientist denier cites, but a sampling always adds context to his claims.

          Our approach is based on the distribution of bacterial branched glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraethers (brGDGTs) and the abundance of the archaeal isoprenoidal (iso)GDGT crenarchaeol. Using the recently developed peat-specific MAATpeat temperature calibration we find that NE China experienced a relatively warm early Holocene (∼5–7 °C warmer than today), followed by a cooling trend towards modern-day values during the mid- and late Holocene.

          You should have noticed that the first paper (did you read it?), referenced a small region in China, and the data will be taken into consideration with all the worldwide data available from that time period.

          The authors used computer modeling and assumed an estimated earlier Holocene temperature 2.5-3C higher (for a tiny region on the coast of Iceland) to model the fate of a small ice cap in Iceland. Again, this data will be part of the overall modeling of the average surface temperature of the Holocene, if it’s at all relevant.
          References #2 for 2.5-3C higher for the tiny region of Iceland.
          Used vanillic acid assay of sediments to confirm what was already known about North Atlantic sea surface temperature. Again the data would be incorporated into reconstructions of the global surface temperature. There analysis did not extend back to the early Holocene.

          This is the kind of “scholarship” one gets from someone like the Trickster, who implies from a single study in NE China that the early Holocene was 5-7C warmer than now.

          But don’t misunderstand, this is not to criticize the actual scientific papers, but only to criticize The Trickster for his unjustified conclusions.

          Do you trust all the methods they use to generate their proxy data, or do you take their word for it as long as it supports your conclusion? Another commenter here doesn’t trust any data not taken with a thermometer, declaring that people like you and The Trickster have no data to tell if it has ever warmed or cooled before about 1800 or so.

          It is possible, if not likely, that regions of the Earth warm or cool independently, but each study adds a datapoint contributing to the average and deviation from the average (error bars).

          Science is hard fuking stuff, man!

          • Kye says:

            Some commenters here believe that the earth is currently warming and blames humans. We disagree because both warming and cooling has occurred for millions of years without humans being involved or even existing at the time.

            It is possible, and very likely, that regions of the earth warm and cool independently because regions of the earth have different temperatures and environments all the time. Hell, the change in warming by season are different all over the world.

            Science is hard fuking stuff and cutting and pasting information for which you have no background education doesn’t prove much which is why science should be left to the scientists and not 16 year old autistic kids, politicians or you.

    “As has been explained to you time and again, your “beliefs” are based on accepting science that suits your narrative.”

    So are yours, Fredo. If you read information with which you disagree you ignore it. How else can we enplane your inability to see abortion as murder, people “changing” sexes or the total equality in every instance of all races? You’re denying scientific facts.

    So basically you and we support different facts and theories because the same questions about warming and cooling over thousands of years, thermometers, written language and cameras apply to you beliefs as much as to ours. You stupid remark about dinosaurs must reflect your form of reference since we know dinosaurs existed not due to your movie but to the bones which are actually displayed around the world.

      What metric do you use to determine equality among humans? IQ has been debunked. Wealth? Modern science no longer supports the concept of human races or subspecies.

      To you, Dildo, abortion is first degree murder. Would you execute both the woman and the provider?

      You desire that abortion be first degree murder, but clearly that’s not what the law says today. Perhaps you can get an amendment banning all abortions.

      How do you differentiate an early stage abortion from a miscarriage, or do you just execute them both and let Allah sort them out?
