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!

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…..when they aren’t firing their own staff.

There. Fixed it for you Ezra.

Great show as always Ezra.
I have been calling their climate change mantra “their religion” for quite a while now, but seriously I think It has gone beyond that now & to the believers it is a requisite for going to heaven. Every day, whether it’s television, newspaper, radio, commercial, etc, we are being inundated with this incessant mindset that if we don’t start paying more taxes to stop the carbon emissions, the world will cease to exist & everybody will die right then & there. Just stop & think of how ridiculous this sounds, but that’s what they’re selling & many, many are buying it. Imagine that, give them more of your hard earned money & there won’t be any more storms, floods, tornados (you get the picture). Absolute BS.

Be careful! Lauren Southern poses as a male, but she also poses as a spokeswoman for Alberta politics.

She is not a male, nor can she speak on behalf of Alberta Conservatives.
commented 2016-10-06 00:16:42 -0400
Ha, funny Edward. I think your right. If Lauren Southern is a dude I’m totally gay. But I’m not. I think?
Maybe I’m a phase 4 male with preferences for bewildered females who think they may be male? I’m so confused.

I winced watching Trudeau call it carbon “pollution”. According to Wikipedia (Quote) “CO2 is a colorless and odorless gas vital to life on Earth”. He wants to tax an element on the periodic table that is “vital to life on earth.” That’s where greenpeace lost myself and one of its founders, Patrick Moore, when their board with only one scientist (Patrick Moore), decided to ban another element, chlorine, which has provided great benefits to human health when used properly. When idiots like Trudeau are paying to employ government scientists for research I think Co2 will be getting a bad rap and the benefits of Co2 will be ignored.

Sorry Lauren unless you identify as a sexual chameleon there is no going back. Even worse if you’re a dude I’m starting to wonder, does that makes me gay?

The Clintons survive and thrive because they have ’ no problem’ strolling over the bodies of the Dead. It is the Looting , LOOTING - that bothers me.

Our resident trolls forget that the GOP hols the majority in both senate and the house and IF Hillary wins she will be a lame duck POTUS who will not be allowed to pass any radical green or SJW agendas – her promises are mostly lies because without GOP support her initiative die on the house floor – if she lives long enough to make them – or if made by executive orders be rejected at a state level.

The house elections in the coming 2 years will likely expand GOP majorities

Hillary’s climate promises will be dead on arrival

Carbon taxing is basically an “everything” tax because every commodity that uses energy to make, grow harvest move to market is going to increase – not just energy use is taxed but the thing we eat, wear and live in will see inflationary costs as the tax incurred in using energy to make and deliver them is passed on to the end user. It is not “revenue neutral” it is cost intensive.

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 – his vacuouss pontificating about it is just hollow virtue posing – pure political theater for his zombie fan base – they will forget all about it next week and he will quiety drop away from it – like he has on his other dramatic “commitments”

Why is Canada the only Country in the World to have a Carbon Tax? A tax on Carbon is illegal under International Law.

Here is the proof, you have to watch this video all the way through to get the message, lot of interruptions by Alex Jones, but worth viewing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI6zd-gPo1o Climate Cops Panic.

Ezra: Thanks for your response to my question about why don’t we hold individual Liberal MP’s accountable. Of course you are right to note that most, and maybe all of them act self-centred and are more interested in maintaining their standard of living and personal power. But when are any of them even asked publicly, by TheRebel or by any News Media, or even by their constituents to explain why they personally support specific, destructive Liberal Party policies and actions, and especially those that will negatively impact their own Ridings? Why are individual Liberal MP’s not held accountable for their contribution towards ruining our economy? To ignore them just validates the belief that Liberal MP’s don’t have any self-esteem or that they will ever act ethically. And unfortunately what it teaches them is that once elected, loyalty to their electorate is unnecessary and unexpected, as the PM demonstrates so very clearly.

If two people always agree then one is useless. If two people never agree then both are useless.

The shock of ever increasing electricity rates has finally hit home in Ontario. I think the people of Ontario realize the increased rates are the direct result of the disastrous Liberal green energy plan. Last time I checked Wynne had a favourablility rating in the low teens. The Ontario Liberals have announced a halt to the construction of new the wind farms in response to the public outcry over some of the highest electrical rates on the continent. A poll may show that Ontarioans still pay lip service to supporting the concept of fighting climate change, but it would seem they don’t want to pay for it.

While the Canadian media tries to sell us on a carbon tax, there is a great effort on behalf of the war mongering obama government to start a nuclear exchange with Russia. Talk green all you want with your radiation suit on. Simpleton dip shits.

Penson. Nice display. And you Lefty’s say you’re not communists huh? I also appreciate you displaying the inferiority complex one has to have to “tell everyone what to do” in order to feel accepted and important.

I think maybe sexual fluidity is all a part of the left’s truth-hating truth-denial, Like our Supreme Court deciding that “truth is not a defense”. Lefty’s are truly psychotic in their never-land head-space. If they were normal they wouldn’t do it, and if they were even half-normal they’d at least know enough to be embarrassed! But nope – they just soldier on with the full confidence of a teenage know-it-all.

I have the greatest respect for actual scientists….I have no respect whatsoever for “journslists” who comment on or “interpret” what scientists say…

Your power to invoke conformity extends no farther than the scope of your human resource department.

Penson unlike you, lots of people still haven’t cut their own balls off and hand them to statist thugs. Most people have enough self respect to reject BS when they hear it and tell punks and bullies to go piss up a rope.

I know principle and self respect are alien concepts to a sniveling little butt surfer like you.

So?! Come November, when Hillary wins, the far right must do what they’re told to do & believe in; or else!

Hey Ezra, When you said “they write for each other” I believe this is right on, as is evidenced by the systemic brainwash instilled beginning in public schools and finalized in university. They have been taught to tow the line, everyone gets a blue ribbon for showing up, critical thinking is not necessary (or allowed), don’t upset the apple cart of “the debate is over”, don’t upset anyone’s sensibility, and most importantly, strive for mediocrity to fit in. And where might these young adults be now? I’ll bet some were in Paris last year when they showed such journalistic integrity and impartiality, jumping up with divine adulation for the signing of the treaty.

Global warming is a shell-game.
“Look over here!”, they cry, while they pull off sleight of hand in the background.
With issues like domestic terrorism, crony capitalism leading the polls and, “What do we want?! Dead Cops! When do we want it? Now!”, running rampant in the streets, of course they want to direct your attention to the future and not the ‘now!"
There’s an election on. That’s now. And all the aforementioned are also now.
I like the Polar Bears and all, but I will worry about them tomorrow.
