Sorry, liberal elites: Pew poll shows most Americans STILL don’t care about global warming

Rebel Staff
 

A liberal think tank called the Pew Research Center has done a major poll about global warming, environmentalism and politics. As always with Pew, it’s rigorous, well-funded, and methodologically sound.

Some highlights:

What percentage of the time are “research findings” on global warming influenced by different factors? 32 per cent said the best available evidence. 36 per cent said it was, “Scientists’ desire to advance their careers”. Another 27 per cent said, “Scientists’ own political leanings”. And 26 per cent said, “Researchers desire to help their industry” — as in to promote solar panels or wind turbines.

Then look at the percent of U.S. adults who follow news about climate change: 12 per cent say not at all. Lucky them. Only 11 per cent say they follow it very closely.

But if you turn on the CBC, read the Toronto Star or the Globe and Mail, or look at the new media like Vice or Buzzfeed, it’s all they bloody well talk about.

What’s my point? Stand your ground. Don’t be bullied by the know-nothing elites.

Know that most other people in real life agree with you — it’s a crock.

NEXT: It's received over 150,000 views and counting— our own Lauren Southern joins us to talk about her shocking undercover viral video, which shows her getting a form from a Toronto doctor declaring her "male," without even a physical examination.

The video, with Lauren in "drag," is funny, but scary, too. Is this really the direction we want to go in as a society?

THEN: Raheem Kassam from Breitbart talks about the situation in Hungary, where 95 per cent of referendum voters said they opposed the EU's plan to force them to accept more Muslim migrants. Is this another sign of a populist uprising in Europe, and the West?

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

“D MARY commented 5 days ago
Kokes you fucktard, you don’t put up any points for me to argue, you just blab. Tell me how you can change the climate?”

You change the climate through man’s activities on earth which continually produces CO2 and other gases to create a atmospheric blanket that retains the solar energy and prevents it from escaping into space. So simple that even a Neanderthal like yourself should be able to understand.

“D MARY commented 5 days ago
Oh, by the way fucktard Kokes, no one is denying climate change, it’s natural, and you using the word denial makes you an idiot.”

What is happening in the last 30 years and more specifically, in the last 15 years is not natural. We have not seen a jump in CO2 and temperatures in the last 800,000 years have we have been experiencing in the last 30 years. The last 15 years have seen record temperatures with 2015 being the hottest and 2014 the next hottest. 2016 looks to be heading in the same direction. This is not natural, this is a result of man’s activities on earth. And nature, which is usually quite resilient in combating such issues, can no longer do so.

Now go back to your cave and do some reading so you can educate yourself and not look like the fool you are.

Look, I know for a fact there were no tornadoes or hurricanes prior to the industrial revolution that produced all kinds of carbon in the air. My great aunts and uncles all lived storm free. The latest hurricane in Florida has never happened before. There just were no hurricanes or even winter weather either. In fact there were no earth quakes at all. We ALL need to get responsible grow up and do our part to support this carbon tax . The carbon tax is going to save us all from certain disaster.

Well, the referendum in Hungary is invalid because too few voters turned up. There seems to have been a boycott of the referendum in Hungary, and this in part explains the results – the people who were against V. Orban just did not vote. If they did, the referendum would be valid, but the percentages would have been very different – Orban would have won anyway, but not as overwhelmingly.

Now, witholding essential information … isn’t it what CBC does?

Kokes, you are a fucktard to think any tax will affect climate change, changes that were happening before industrialization, before man, completely out of our control. Take your own advice and keep your mouth shut or keep talking and remove all doubt as to what a fucktard you are. Don’t procreate either, this world doesn’t need more of you, you just drag our social services down.

And one more thing Mikey….best to remain silent and have people think you are a fool then open your mouth as you just did and confirm to all that you are. What a tard! Next..

Kokes, you should be locked up and your children taken away for their own protection from you lies. The sun controls our climate and doesn’t accept MasterCard or cash. You want your children to be robbed of money that can not affect the climate one iota.

One more thing kokes……climate change does, is, has and always will happen. Try to be smarter.

Kokes. … what color is the kool-aid that you drink. As for my children and grand children and their children. I have great regard for their future and that is why the leftist regressive fucktards and the enviro- mental wackos have to be stopped from destroying this country and the world for that matter. As for the low information mouth breathers like yourself, stay the fuck out my life and shove your supposed moral authority up your ass.

I was wondering where the majority of hand dragging Neanderthals were gathered after leaving Ball`s lackluster thread and here they are worshiping Ezra.

Ezra, do you have no regard for your children or their children`s future in proudly reporting on this? Do you really believe climate change is not occurring? Do you really believe people are “know-nothing” elites if they suggest otherwise? And to suggest that Americans know better is laughable.

Start taking the high moral ground Ezra because the intellectuals of this country are not buying into your rhetoric.

I don’t talk politics are work, but someone asked me direct. When I told them I am not believer their eyes bulged out of their head.

- Climate “science” has become so easy to pick apart at this point that it’s become almost hilarious. The “science” is junk science at best. The “solutions” don’t match the “problems” & anyone who’s been alive for more than 10 years has seen an almost endless number of climate doomsdays fail to materialize. It’s a cult & a scam.

- I saw Lauren’s video – hilarious & disturbing.

- Good for Hungary. Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of the disaster known as the EU.

“I know this carbon tax will never come to be in any real way because even tater tot knows at some level its disastrous and unworkable and people will hate it and provinces will reject it and it is a political albatross "

I love the hyperbole. It’s pretty easy to discount this opinion by pointing to BC, which has a carbon tax and where none of this has happened.

" So logically we have to conclude that because the human body emits carbon dioxide , all humans by way of our very existence are polluters.".

No. The carbon dioxide released by biological systems is biogenic, and is not carbon being net-introduced to the atmosphere/biosphere. (that released during its production is another question, and indeed, a substantial emitter)
commented 2016-10-06 09:01:56 -0400
Ezra. Stop using the phase “carbon tax” it is either “CO2 tax” or perhaps “oxygen tax” Its like calling your Green Energy Bill your Hydro bill.

It is hard to believe that JT and princess Whinny are so out of touch with the common folk. We simply cannot afford these taxes. In their little world it is a simple matter of raising taxes when they want more money. I cannot get a raise in income to pay for their unfair taxes. The liberals have never cared about Canadians, it is all about them.

The good news is that Wynne is getting push-back on her extreme green energy plan. As far as I can determine she has had to shelve her proposals to construct charging stations for electric cars and to require people to buy these cars.

She wanted to force people to switch out their natural gas fired furnaces and replace them with electric units. I don’t think this one is going anywhere.
The Liberals lost the recent byelection in Liberal Fortress Toronto even though Patrick Brown is a very weak PC leader. To a Liberal this was an ominous event.
Ontario is in serious economic trouble. If Wynne and Trudeau add to the this problem by imposing carbon taxes the problem will get worse and they will pay the price at the polls when Ontario’s economy deteriorates even further.

Any climate warming is due to natural causes like sun flares. This has occurred since the beginning of the planet. If they want humans to reduce their footprint on the planet then let us reduce the world population. This would produce quicker results than reducing carbon output. Some cultures promote large families which is no longer acceptable in an overcrowded planet. I see that the jihadiis have already started their own brand of population control. Is this the hidden agenda of the lefties?
commented 2016-10-06 07:04:05 -0400
If a refinery or factory emits carbon dioxide , it is called a polluter. So logically we have to conclude that because the human body emits carbon dioxide , all humans by way of our very existence are polluters. The question then becomes are we all to limit the number of breaths we take while we are on the planet? I guess all mammals breath as well and pollute the planet , so if we are to survive we will have to kill all the animals on the planet first to save the human race. Save the planet, kill a deer. Open season on moose. Fred’s hunting party just saved the planet , they bagged a moose !!
Sound riduculous , inane? Well it isn’t any crazier than what these envriro-marxists are promoting.

Drew, Hillary is going to win, one way or another. Just like Justin will win with the new voting system. Once the centre left secures power, the far right will pay.

Think of the Ukraine in the 1930s

Drew W, No she doesn’t. She speaks only for the conspiracy minded. You are not a conservative; you’re more of a social credit or reform party right winger. Conservatives are never as far to the right as you people toon the central prairies.

I’m very happy that you’ve conceded that Trump has lost the election. Just like the conservatives will do very poorly, and that Justin will win another strong mandate
