Surprise: Farmers Believe In Climate Change, Just Not Anthropogenic

Hey, you know all the talking points that farmers are super concerned about climate change? About that

Farmers Believe In Climate Change But Don’t Think Humans Are The Cause, New Poll Shows

A new poll shows farmers overwhelmingly believe climate change is real and will create significant weather problems but do not think it’s caused by human actions.

The latest annual Farm and Rural Life Poll, conducted by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and the Iowa State Center for Survey Statistics and Methodology, indicates 80% of farmers believe climate change is occurring, and more than half are concerned with its impact on their operations. (snip)

The study also indicates only 18% believe human activities are causing climate change. That comes as there is an increasing focus from the Biden administration on agriculture’s role in mitigating the problem.

Farmers are concerned about weather, for obvious reasons. And, a warming, or cooling, world can create issues. You had the great potato famine in Ireland and all the crop failures in France, leading to a revolution. Both during the Little Ice Age. Farmers will adapt.

Here’s where this gets really fun

Climate change activists say changing practices is more important than changing minds.

“I don’t think we have the luxury of time to change everybody’s mind,” said Rolf Nordstrom, president and CEO of the Great Plains Institute, a nonpartisan energy advocacy group. “But what we could do is create the market conditions that allow agriculture to flourish in pursuing a low carbon, net-zero carbon world.”

In other words, screw their opinions, they will be forced to comply. Even though most of the little climate cultists refuse to change their own lives. This really doesn’t seem to be about science, but power.

    Bernie Madoff’s dying breath: “If only I had run a climate scam, I would never have had to pay anyone back.”

    Climate science is the perfect racket. The audits are a hundred years in the future, the payoffs are today.

    Not long ago Teach wasn’t convinced the Earth was warming. Recall the sturm und drang amongst science deniers regarding the so-called Great Pause?

    But that’s all ancient history to deniers.

    Now deniers deny they denied it was warming and pretend the issue was always the cause! And what is the cause of this period of rapid warming, according to deniers? There is no cause!! It’s just part of the natural ebb and flow of climate. The Earth has always been warming and cooling for billions of years for no physical reason. The so-called “science” and “scientists” today are just part of the global communist agenda to control Americans and steal all the money.

    And as always, Teach pulls: “Even though most of the little climate cultists refuse to change their own lives,” out of his nether regions.

    Sorry, J, it’s no more rapid than earlier. But you already knew that..

    Like most rural Americans, most farmers vote Republican, especially those with smaller, family farms.

    Most Republicans get their information from right-wing news outlets. Not to denigrate right-wing news outlets, though. But for those who do depend on right-wing news outlets, “denigrate” means to “put down”.

      Rimjob proving again he knows absolutely nothing about rural Americans, farmers, Republicans, or “right-wing” news outlets.
      Or anything else of relevance.

      Thanks again dipshit for bringing the stupid and providing the chuckles.
