42% Of Americans Want To Transition Away From Fossil Fuels

The questions not asked in the poll: have you transitioned away from using fossil fuels yourself, and, if not, why? The responses could be

  • Yes – 1%
  • No, because it is too hard and would screw with my life and this should apply to Other People – 57%
  • No, see, Trump is a Orange Man Bad and screeeeeeeeeeeee! – 42%

Anyhow

2020 Polls: Almost half of Americans want to transition from fossil fuels as majority say time is running out to save planet

The majority of people think that time is running out to tackle the climate crisis, according to a sweeping poll shared exclusively with The Independent.

In the survey of 5,500 people across the US last month, 54 per cent either strongly or partially agreed that the window was rapidly close on our ability to prevent more devastating consequences as a result of global heating.

Climate change is considered by Americans the second most important issue facing the world, topped only by the coronavirus pandemic, according to the poll conducted by HOPE not Hate (Hnh), an anti-extremism non-profit.

We can totally trust this hardcore leftist group’s polling, right?

The issue is most palpable among supporters of Joe Biden with 73 per cent agreeing that tackling the climate crisis an urgent issue. The Democratic presidential candidate has called climate change an “existential threat to humanity”.

President Trump’s supporters are split: Some 37 per cent agree that we are running out of time to tackle climate change while the same percentage disagree.

However the US poll also found that a significant number of Americans are climate change deniers.

One in five people strongly dismiss the notion that humans are contributing to global warming, while another 19 per cent somewhat believe it is the case.

Yet, how many of those 73% of Biden voters do more in their own lives than change a few light bulbs? And then a separate poll, for which they do not provide a link

The polling, conducted by JL Partners for The Independent, found that 42 per cent of people agree, and “strongly” agree, with transitioning away from fossil fuels.

Some 26 per cent of people said they were unsure of how to answer, while 8 per cent agreed with neither.

The poll, of 1,002 people from 26-28th October, also revealed that 22 per cent disagree, or “strongly” disagree, with transitioning away from oil and gas.

I’d love to see the party affiliation breakdown, but, let’s face it, you know that a majority of that 42 percent are Harris/Biden voters, who refuse to give up their own use of fossil fuels in their own lives. However, let’s give the Harris/Biden voters some credit, they aren’t using much in the way of fossil fuels to drive to Biden events

    We are going to transition away from fossil fuels. That is a no brainer.

    Fusion Energy has had massive break throughs in the last couple of decades.

    They just created a super conductor that works at ROOM TEMPERATURE. This is the single most amazing piece of work in the last 200 years. This alone will allow us to do things unimaginable with technology.

    The problem is not IF we transition away but how soon. We will transition away no matter who is president by 2050-2060. No matter who is president.

    The problem is your vote matters today for America’s future. A Trump BOOM or BIDEN DOOM. Biden is not and will not be in control.

    Tulsi Gabbard told Joe Rogan a year ago in an interview the first thing we are told is to NEVER WORK WITH A REPUBLICAN ON ANYTHING and ESPECIALLY ONE THAT WE ARE TARGETING IN THE NEXT ELECTION.

    ANY DEMOCRAT you vote for will lie to get elected and then do EXACTLY what PELOSI AND SHURMER tell them to do. You are no longer represented. The Democratic party is represented. Big business is represented. Billionaire Donors are represented.

    Remember that when you cast your ballot. Any vote for Any Democrat is as Tulsi describes it is a vote for NANCY PELOSI and CHUCK SHURMER and NOT BIDEN/HARRIS.

      *a super conductor that works at ROOM TEMPERATURE. This is the single most amazing piece of work in the last 200 years. This alone will allow us to do things unimaginable with technology*

      At about 1 million atm pressures…That’s because the substance superconducts at room temperature only while being crushed between a pair of diamonds to pressures roughly 75 percent as extreme as those found in the Earth’s core.

      It’s interesting, and progress is being made but it’s far from practical… yet.

      But a question: Why should we transition away from fossil fuels since global climate change is a hoax and a scam and we have many decades of oil left, many decades of natural gas and hundreds of years of coal? Given the time frames, why not just build thousands of nuclear power plants to power the world? After all, what humans do has little if any impact on the climate and the global climate change hoax and scam is just a way for the DemoChiComs to control the masses.

        You want to transition because global wahoo would give you the excuse to rule every detail of people’s lives. Just like you’re trying to do with the Sisolak Sneeze.

        You opposed nucular from the start because Hiroshima, Amerikkka bad.

        Last statement true, but the reason is that real science doesn’t care about consensus; it always wants to see what’s over the next horizon.

        Real science always questions the consensus.

  2. Est1950 says:

    Good news for Elwood. Lichtman says Biden will win this election. He is the guy with the 13 point lithmus test who declares he has gotten every election right since 84 with his model. Except Al Gore which he then claims he got right cause Gore won the popular vote.

    In that case he was wrong about Predicting Trump because HRC won the popluar vote.

    13) Challenger charisma:

    I fail to see how he reads this. If 6 or more of these are against Trump he Loses. AS I read his tea leaves Trump fails the test on 5 of them. #’s:1,5,6,8,9. And Americans are not blaming Trump for 5,6 and the social unrest is being suppred on by Democrats.

    So we shall see. But Fox News has Trump behind by 10 points nationally as the esteemed never trumper, I hate republicans Stirewalt continues his voter suppression routine.

    10 points? That translates to a 16 million vote national win. That means again as I said, Trump loses Wyoming to Biden.

    • Est1950 says:

      Oh and by the way what you will see on Monday is every polling organization will pull their polls to within the margin of Error including Stirewalt because that way when the finger pointing starts they can righteously claim they were within the margin of error.

      Stirewalt famously said on camera during the Trump win. “There are no magic beans, in the end, the voters vote.” He went on to say EVERY RACE was within the margin of error.

      That is how they cover their voter suppression, the last poll pulls everything into a tight little bow and hugs the margin of error so that they can seek cover. Watch the polls on Sunday/Monday.

      In 2016 the ones that had the biggest explaining to do were those outside the margin of error.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Lichtman predicted trump would win the popular vote in 2016. He was wrong.

      Michael Moore predicted that trump would win upper midwest states in 2016 and win the election. He was right.

      *”Corporate America hates Trump. Wall Street hates Trump. The career politicians hate Trump. The media hates Trump,” he told the Ohio crowd.
      “And it’s why every beaten down, nameless, forgotten working stiff, who used to be part of what was called the middle class, loves Trump.
      “He is the human Molotov cocktail that they’ve been waiting for. The human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them.”*

      And even though trump delivered on few of his promises, Moore predicts that the fervid enthusiasm of trump supporters will carry him in 2020 as well.

      • formwiz says:

        Just because he’s a big fat Commie jerk doesn’t mean he can’t be right once in a blue moon.

        Hey, guess what? There’s a blue moon tonight.

        And even though Trump delivered on few of his promises, Moore predicts that the fervid enthusiasm of Trump supporters will carry him in 2020 as well.

        He delivered bigly. You lie. Again.

  3. Kye says:

    The margin of error in this election will be how many illegal votes the Democommies can force to be counted AFTER the election is over. I can recall when election day was one day and still the Democrats managed to steal elections. Now it’s election months so I can only imagine what these crooked votes stealing pigs are in the midst of pulling off.

    They need it though because Trumps momentum is unstoppable. As Slimy Joe and The Hoe hide from questions on his corruption and treason, Trump has huuuuge rallies.

    Trump 2020 Keep Joe and The Ho out of power. Unless, like Bernie, you like food lines.

    • formwiz says:

      Not that many illegals (unless you mean fraudulent) votes this time. The Wall has seen to that.

      Hispanics are pro-Trump to an unprecedented degree, as are blacks (in the post LBJ era).

      But you’re right on the idea we have to surpass the margin of victory, but also the margin of fraud. It’s been that way since Richard J Daley stole IL.

  4. Kye says:

    Something doesn’t compute with this election. I have a feeling the Democommies with the help of the Soros people and their ass-covering media and Twitter style censorship may be about to pull off the biggest vote fraud/election theft in recorded history. When I see crowds of exuberant supporters at every Trump rally, when I see rallies of supporters even when Trump isn’t present, when I see rivers full of boat parades for Trump and highways with 85 miles of supporters in cars for Trump then six people and 20 “media” at a Biden “rally” I know I’m being played when these pollsters say Biden is ahead. They are part of the grift. They are setting America up for a bullshit Biden victory. I can feel it. They will stuff the ballot box then they will be the ones counting the votes…for weeks. It’s all going to be a fraud.

    I’d be willing to bet the TV heads won’t even call any states for Trump on election night. They’ve been told not to until the Democommies “count the votes”.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Kye,

      This is why the Republicans are filing multiple lawsuits in most states and why they rushed Barrett onto the Supreme Court, to take the contest out of the hands of voters.

      Trump’s strategy is state by state. To do everything possible to keep vote totals down. To challenge every result in the courts. Have the Supreme Court declare him president.

      Trump is desperate to destroy the norms and institutions of the US. He is desperate to destroy confidence in the electoral process. Why? Because he is unpopular and suspects he will lose the election.

      • Kye says:

        The Democommies are also filing multiple laws suits in every state. In fact they INVENTED political lawfare! They approved Barrett because THE LAW said to. It’s in the Constitution, STUPID! Regardless of who wins we wanted some equality in the court. You commies have had it rigged since FDR. Isn’t that why you DIDN’T want her? You’ve been using the court to legislate and the thought of us doing that scares the shit out of you.

        Trump’s strategy is to get votes, just like Corrupt Joe’s is. You’re just pissed because Trump’s a better campaigner that Sniffer and the Hoe by a mile!

        Trump is trying to RESTORE the the norms and institutions of the US which have been usurped by leftists and communists since the 50″s. You guys have already destroyed confidence in the electoral process by voter fraud, denying voter fraud, challenging the election results in the Bush/Gore debacle, having bitches like Hillary and others screeching “Never concede, never concede”, and by trying every trick to get fake votes like mail ins used. It was you Democommies that stated “vote early, vote often”. Not us. It was Democommies that rigged the JFK/Nixon election. Not us. You liars have a history of rigging elections.

        Once again you try and blame us for the very shit you pull. You are incorrigible and your Party is one of deceit and LIES!

        Trump 2020 Stop the leftist lies. Execute the commies!

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Regardless of how the vote turns out, trump will declare victory on Nov 4. He’ll argue the process was corrupt. Recall that he lied in 2016 claiming that he actually won the popular vote. trump has suckered you hapless fools. He has no concern for anyone but himself.

          You are incorrigible and your Party is one of deceit and LIES!

          The increasingly unhinged Kye threatens: *Execute the commies!*

          No doubt, right-wing extremists will storm an East coast polling place and count on the media to broadcast the violence widely to keep people away from the polls nationwide. Philly would be a good choice. trump can then claim the vote is compromised.

      • Est1950 says:

        So your afraid of the Law Elwood? The democrats have already hired over 800 lawyers for this election. It sounds like they are prepared to continue the resistance until they finally get the result they want.

        What I will promise you is that If Biden loses the left goes ape shit and continues to terrorize America. But I will promise you one other thing. If Biden wins in a highly suspicious manner then the right will go ape shit.

        Most GOP’ers will abide by the results if they are clear cut. If the Democrats keep turning up cases of ballots days after the election to give Biden PA, MI, WI, MN etc…etc. then yeah you can expect this to be in the supreme court and don’t forget one thing.

        In 2000 the supreme court was democrat leaning. They gave the election to Bush because after half a dozen recounts he still held the lead. It is what it is.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          The right will go ape shit regardless if trump loses, as trump has convinced all you all that the process of fraudulent. Remember that 2 of the last 3 Republican Presidents lost the popular vote.

          So why even have an election? Do we need a new system? Flip a coin?

          Trump wouldn’t stand a chance in a free and fair election.

            Not Trump, the Democrats. We all knew you were crooked long before Trump. 140% turnout ring a bell?

            Remember that 2 of the last 3 Republican Presidents lost the popular vote.

            So did Willie Whitewater.

            So why even have an election? Do we need a new system? Flip a coin?

            I want to see the coin.

            Trump wouldn’t stand a chance in a free and fair election.

            But he’ll win this one despite your best efforts.

    Limey poll, no access to crosstabs.

    This is why the Republicans are filing multiple lawsuits in most states and why they rushed Barrett onto the Supreme Court, to take the contest out of the hands of voters.

    No, it’s because screwing around with due dates gives lots of time to manufacture ballots.

    Trump’s strategy is state by state. To do everything possible to keep vote totals down. To challenge every result in the courts. Have the Supreme Court declare him president.\

    Challenging every result in the courts is the Demo strategy. Why do you think they proposed main in voting?

    Trump is desperate to destroy the norms and institutions of the US. He is desperate to destroy confidence in the electoral process. Why? Because he is unpopular and suspects he will lose the election.

    The norm is vote on election day. It’s you that’s desperate to destroy confidence in the electoral process.

    Why? Because he will kill you at the real polls.

      Really? China opens nearly 200 coal plants a year. That’s a hell of a victory. All you are doing is throwing poor, starving American miners children in the streets to die. Pure leftist cruelty.

      Leftists are truly stupid people not the least interested in science or the future of our climate but strictly interested in power and control and the elimination of capitalism and Christianity. They stink of putrid lies.
