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.
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!
