Climate Change Education Bearing Fruit

Quoting Angus Reid Global Monitor:
“While still high, the proportion of people in the United States who are concerned about climate change has dropped this year, according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports. 65 per cent of respondents believe global warming is a very or somewhat serious problem, down eight points since April.

In addition, 43 per cent of respondents believe global warming is primarily caused by human activity, while 43 per cent blame long term planetary trends.”

“Source: Rasmussen Reports
Methodology: Telephone interviews with 1,000 American adults, conducted on Dec. 13 and Dec. 14, 2008. Margin of error is 3 per cent.”

Click here and here for the cited Rasmussen survey results (from December, 2008 and April, 2008).

In comparing the two surveys, the best news is found here:

1) When asked “How serious a problem is global warming?”, the number who selected the correct answer (Not at all serious) DOUBLED, in just 8 months, from 8% to 16%.

2) When asked “Is global warming caused primarily by human activity or by long term planetary trends?”, the number who selected the correct answer (long term planetary trends) increased, in just 8 months, from 34% to 43% - a 26% increase.

For those who answered incorrectly, I suggest you click here and read up on “Milankovitch Cycles”.

Obviously, there remains a LOT of work to be done. But, overcoming massive and pervasive media propaganda takes time. The good news is that every metric cited by this source shows improvements in science making progress against pure political propaganda.

The bad news is that Obama is already proving himself to be the most radical environmental nut job ever elected President. Obama is clearly a charter member of the single most dangerous religious cult ever known to humanity.

Obama appears to be possibly backing off of some of his nutty campaign rhetoric. However, it is extremely clear that he is NOT backing down from his promise to bankrupt America’s coal industry. And, it is extremely clear that, contrary to the consensus of the scientific community, Obama is going to pursue an extremely costly, damaging and unspeakably foolish attempt to micromanage climate changes which are UTTERLY beyond our control.

So, the question now becomes - Can science overcome pure political propaganda in time to avoid the looming economic catastrophe which will SURELY ensue if Obama pursues his nutty climate change agenda. Time will tell.
