Bummer: Yet Another Poll Shows That People Really Do Not Care About ‘Climate Change’

We just had a poll from Gallup which showed that, despite the heavy push from the Cult of Climastrology during lockdown, people just don’t care about the climate change scam that much in practice. Now (via Climate Change Dispatch)

Exclusive poll: Amid COVID-19, Americans don’t care about climate change anymore

Battered by pandemic and economic collapse, do Americans have the capacity to care about the environment? Not so much, judging by a national poll we just conducted.

We asked a panel of U.S. adults a series of questions about today’s most crucial issues, environmental policy options, and their own behavior. In all three categories, I was personally surprised and discouraged to discover that our devotion to the world around us is flagging.

In a survey we at the Harris Poll conducted last December, American adults said climate change was the number one issue facing society. Today, it comes in second to last on a list of a dozen options, ahead of only overpopulation. Among Gen X men, in fact, more than third dismiss climate change as unimportant. COVID-19 and the recession have, of course, reordered priorities around the world. Still, the coronavirus didn’t elbow aside other issues as muscularly as it did climate change. (Incidentally, global warming is a bigger concern to retirement-age women than any other age group except millennial men.)

Additionally, we asked about policies the government could adopt to fight global warming or help the environment generally. There was majority support for only one of nine initiatives, with 51% endorsing tax credits or rebates for greater energy efficiency in buildings. Moreover, 13% of all respondents say the government should do nothing to improve the environment, a stance that rises to nearly one in five of all survey takers in the South.

Bummer. It just goes to show, people may care about the climate change scam in theory, but, not in practice. Anyhow, the one thing I’m not finding is the actual poll itself. The article writer is Will Johnson, the Harris CEO, but, no one, including Harris, has the poll metrics.

Anyhow, it gets even worse for the Cult of Climastrology, and the Democrats, since their 2020 strategy seems to revolve around Hotcoldwetdry

But we are also reverting back to a society that throws too much away. Younger men in particular are ordering more takeout food, packed in single-use plastic bags and disposable boxes, often with those plastic straws scorned for littering the landscape and polluting waterways. We are toting reusable bags less often on errands. Probably because more of us are home, we also are consuming more energy to keep our homes cooler in the summer and warmer in chilly months than we used to.

And when the pandemic ends—or at least is suitably controlled—American adults say they’ll behave in ways that would increase their carbon footprint. According to our survey, we’ll drive as much as we did before, take public transportation less, bicycle or walk less, buy more clothes, and have more stuff packaged up and shipped to our homes. And most of us plan to jack up the home AC and heat even more than we already have.

    Polls also show that people don’t support DJ Trump.

    Is it really surprising that Americans are most worried about Covid-19 and impending collapse of the economy?

    We note that conservablogs have little (except lies) to say about the pandemic and the recession.

      YOu are a funny man.

      Polls show many things. Polls showed at this time in Obama’s second term that the people did not support Obama either. Or Bush, Or Clinton or Bush Sr. and Even Reagan was barely over 50 percent.

      Polls are always wrong. The only thing I will give the polls credit for it that Biden will in fact probably win the popular vote again. And when the left squelches the electoral college that will be when the USA Disolves.

      The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove.

      2014, 2016, 2018 Rasmussen was spot on. Almost to the percentile. Trump only needs the threshold of 45-46 percent to be reelected.

      AUGUST 12, 2020….48 percent approve of Trump.

      AUGUST 12, 2020….45 percent approve of OBAMA.

      How do you think this is gonna work out there fellah? Biden and Harris threw blacks in jail by the droves their political careers. Biden has said defund the police.

      Yet a new poll shows something since your LIKE POLLS.

      A Gallup poll released on Wednesday AUGUST 5th, 2020 shows that 81 percent of black Americans want the police presence to remain the same or increase in their neighborhood or area.

      According to the poll, “67 percent of all U.S. adults” also prefer the “status quo” when it comes to local police presence.

      Eighty-three percent of Hispanic Americans and 88 percent of white Americans share similar attitudes.

      In contrast, only 72 percent of Asian Americans say they would prefer increased or the same amount of police presence in their neighborhoods.

      This is not going to work out well for the democrats in 2020. Im glad you like polls there fellah. I can shove them up your behind all day long.

        Black Americans may be the largest perpetrators of crime, but an even larger number of black Americans are the largest victims of crime. The gang-bangers and drug dealers, as prevalent as they are in the heavily minority neighborhoods of big cities, are still a small percentage of the population of those neighborhoods, and the majority of people in those neighborhoods want to feel and be safer in their neighborhoods.

        Former Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey of Philadelphia used to complain about the “no snitchin'” culture in the black areas of the City of Brotherly Love, but it wasn’t so much because the victims didn’t want the perpetrators caught, but that they feared for the lives of themselves and their families if they did talk.

        When they see the chaos that Mayor Jim Kenney and District Attorney Larry Krasner have allowed to build in their communities, you’re going to see a whole lot more Republican votes coming out of North and Northeast Philly this November.

        As of yesterday, Philly had seen 280 homicides, a 30% increase over the same day last year . . . and last year saw the highest number since 2007. Other crimes are soaring as well.

        According to the poll, “67 percent of all U.S. adults” also prefer the “status quo” when it comes to local police presence.

        Eighty-three percent of Hispanic Americans and 88 percent of white Americans share similar attitudes.

        Well, Asian Americans haven’t seen much crime in their neighborhoods, but they do watch television. Americans of Asian descent tend to be more liberal, but they also favor order, and “only” 72% is still a huge majority.

      Well, it seems that the esteemed Mr Dowd has recognized what I’ve been saying here for months: people are more concerned about keeping their jobs today, and putting food on the table tonight, than they are about what the temperature is going to be eighty years in the future.

    • formwiz says:

      Care to share some of these polls?

      Even MSLSD says she’s a flop. Only a third like her. The rest is split evenly between, “Oh, no” and “Who?”.

    Yeah the left that endorses the… worlds gonna end by climate change… now has scared the holy hello out of their base with the China Virus and they expect these people to be all worrying about the planet getting a bit warmer or the sea rising in a 100 years vs a flu that is one breath away from doing them in????

    Extinction level event. That is AGW. That is the Wuhan contagion. That is police brutality.

      Why do you think the fake news media is hiding the rioting and looting by Nazi Antifa and Commie BLM in cities like Shitcago, Portland and others. They know when the working man sees what their policies and allies have done to American cities they won’t want it done to them.

      White Lives Matter!

      Inside Nazi Pelousys district, if you have the balls to look, Elwood. This is what YOUR policies create!
