Americans are hot but not too bothered by global warming. Most Americans know the climate is changing, but they say they are just not that worried about it, according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. And that is keeping the American public from demanding and getting the changes that are necessary to prevent global warming from reaching a crisis, according to climate and social scientists.
As top-level international negotiations to try to limit greenhouse gas emissions start later this month in Paris, the AP-NORC poll taken in mid-October shows about two out of three Americans accept global warming and the vast majority of those say human activities are at least part of the cause.However, fewer than one in four Americans are extremely or very worried about it, according the poll of 1,058 people. About one out of three Americans are moderately worried and the highest percentage of those polled — 38 percent — were not too worried or not at all worried.
Despite high profile preaching by Pope Francis, only 36 percent of Americans see global warming as a moral issue and only a quarter of those asked see it as a fairness issue, according to the poll which has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
People know a hoax when they smell one, and this one stinks to high heaven. Despite the best efforts of the Left, normal Americans are not about to put their money into the wallets of the likes of Al Gore without a struggle.
“The big deal is that climate has not been a voting issue of the American population,” said Dana Fisher, director of the Program for Society and the Environment at the University of Maryland. “If the American population were left to lead on the issue of climate, it’s just not going to happen.”
Therefore, comrade, you must be made to care. Meanwhile, the next time some “End is Near” madman accosts you on the street and starts shouting about looming doom, ask him this: before man, what caused “climate change” in the past? What caused “climate change” on Mars? The truth is, there is no “change” from an imaginary, idyllic norm: Climate is change. And no one should pay a dime to stop it.
