Fewer Than Half Of Americans Buy Man-Caused Global Warming

August 17, 2008

This should be encouraging news to those whose IQs exceed their shoe size…

Fewer than half of Americans polled by the Pew Research Center believe humans are causing global warming, and a declining number even believe the Earth is experiencing a warming trend.

The survey, conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, finds “roughly half, or 47 percent, of Americans say the Earth is warming because of human activity, such as the burning of fossil fuels.”

Nearly as many, 45 percent of respondents, contend the higher Earth temperatures are due to “natural environment patterns,” that no global warming exists, or that causes cannot be scientifically determined.

Seventy-one percent of Americans believe the Earth is warming, down from 77 percent of Americans who held that belief last year. The six percentage point drop parallels falling, and in some parts of the country, record-low, temperatures over the past year that continued a decade-long trend of temperatures remaining flat or falling.

So less than half of Americans buy the demagoguery of global warming, and the trend is moving downward. Maybe it has something to do with all the facts that keep proving that global warming is an overblown load of huey perpetrated by socialists who want to redistribute wealth and anoint themselves as priests of the worship of Mother Earth.

In another development, it just came out that this “Decade has had fewest 90-degree days since 1930.”

Just a couple weeks ago a study of 17th century ship logs provided a further evidence that man-caused Global Warming is a load of pseudo-scientific politically-fascist hoakum.

Remember that part of the book “1984” when Winston Smith was electroshocked into seeing that “two plus two makes five”? In the modern version, he would be electroshocked until he believed “Greenland was never green!”

The global warming movement has always been about politics over science. The Pew Research Center study also pointed out that:

“Only 27 percent of Republicans surveyed believe humans are causing global warming. By contrast, 58 percent of Democrats blame global warming on humans.”

I’ve written two articles on the subject of global warming:

What the Science REALLY Says About Global Warming

What You Never Hear About Global Warming

Both the Environmental Protection Agency and the Congressional Budget Office have reported that so-called “global warming legislation” would massively cost the US economy, and would in fact have the worst consequences upon the poorest Americans. The “cap and trade” bill alone would ultimately cost the US economy nearly $2 TRILLION.

I’m starting to believe that there’s a conspiracy: liberals are deliberately sabotaging American schools in hopes of creating people who are so ignorant, so stupid, and so controlled by ideology, that they will believe the liberal agenda.

But as of today, two plus two STILL DOESN’T make five. That’s a cause for celebration.
