(POLL) Public is split on ‘Climate Change’ and causes

Half (50%) of people surveyed say the climate is “warming due to man’s activities,” while 45% of those polled say the climate is “always changing, it’s normal.”

That’s according to the unscientific poll of 3,010 people at SharylAttkisson.com.

Climate change, also referred to as global warming, has become a very controversial political issue within the last few decades. Many scientists say it’s a proven fact; while many scientists take the other side and say it is not.

The Republican Party, by and large, does not see a strong link between human activity and climate change; whereas, the majority of the Democratic Party claims there is. Several years ago, Rep. Alexandrio Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) famously pronounced the world was coming to an end in a little more than a decade if the course weren’t reversed.

In the 1970s, the scientific trend was to claim global cooling– that a new “Ice Age” was impending and the planet faced an imminent freeze.

The Green New Deal was the plan supported by Democrats to spend billions more tax dollars to tackle climate change and wean the US off of fossil fuels. It also intends to curb allegedly planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions, ultimately obtaining a “net-zero” level of emissions by 2050.

The resolution was sponsored by Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) during the 116th United States Congress. It passed in the House, though it failed to advance in the Senate. However, many of the provisions were slipped into the Inflation Reduction Act, which did pass. After it passed, the Biden Administration and others hailed it as the biggest climate change bill ever enacted.

At the same time, many European nations are backing off similar green targets and goals amid the current green energy disaster. They are facing unaffordable energy prices, shortages, rationing, and other issues due to a green energy transition that’s gone south. They are also reopening coal plants and/or extending the dates of their intended closings.

  1. I have a problem with this poll. ‘Either/or’ doesn’t allow for the gray areas. And due to the military’s geoengineering experiments–weather manipulation is a very real article. Read Elana Freeland’s book for further clues: https://www.amazon.com/Chemtrails-HAARP-Spectrum-Dominance-Planet-ebook/dp/B00H6V089Y/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
    This: Elana M. Freeland’s startling book sifts through the confusion surrounding chemtrails-versus-contrails and how extreme weather is being “geo-engineered” to enrich disaster capitalists and intimidate nations.

  2. Now the Biden administration is talking about “managing” sunlight to cool the Earth by spreading particles in the atmosphere. How will dimming the amount of sunlight that reaches the Earth affect the electricity supply from solar panels? The whole mess is insanity.

    1. I think the ultimate goal of the group behind Joe Biden is to get the population down to 1 billion using any and all avenues possible.

  3. Why don’t you ask an important question, how will plants survive if humans get rid of CO2 and let’s see how many truly understand the importance of this gas and throw in as a bonus question, since the majority of life on earth is carbon based what happens when we go to carbon neutral or carbon zero to all the life on earth?

  4. Over a long period I’ve looked at climate and subsequently the weather, and as a layman, but an interested party, I’d clearly comprehended this part of nature is far too complex and constantly changing and evolving to be foolishly and evilly spoken publicly about by the likes of Al Gore, Greta (a teenage girl), and so many others who have some sort of platform they’ve not earned.
    The disconcerting effect is that they’ve taken advantage of so many gullible people. The product of this is that all of us are then left with the maelstrom they leave in their wake.
    More to the point it is another weapon the left utilizes, another easy tool for power over others, well beyond climate.
    Educate yourselves people!

    1. I think you are exactly right. The notion that CO2 going from .03% to .04% of the atmosphere acts as a simple rheostat for the Earth’s temperature is fatuous.

  5. This article on Climate corporate weaponazation windfall profiting ? My previous sentence is a 100% statement that is currently happening and will snow ball economicly for mostly Americans and some E.U. countries. While China and others regions of Earth have to many people to live by this ? ( They have to many poorer people to ever afford to pay to make changes ) All the Worlds Governments need to be onboard and agree 100% to Regulate prices of goods and future technologies energy low so other mass populated poorer counties like India, Pakastan South Africa and Asain countries as well as even many states in U.S. with low income people. .Not to let Corporations and greedy Lobbyist Weaponize ( Higher energy prices and goods nobody can afford to = Weaponize any climate change ) you people’s idea’s of Climate change switch over. Poorer ccountries cannot afford to do ? Like I said all counties would have to mandate and force future prices low to keep all prices low so every country in the World would without a doubt be to make any changes ? The 100% facts are in mankind’s History there are just to many greedy people running some countries any many corporations in the World to ever make any switch over possible for many countries with mass poorer people regions of Earth. “You should have created ( Engineered ) New kinds of cheaper Hydrogen combustion engine technologies . Your ideas of a Hydrogen engine are to expensive to mass produce and to many parts in them to be a viable economic replacement possibility. There is much better engineering ideas here for future burning Hydrogen New engines ? You people on a Honest Global scale are like a bunch of Giggling Minions that cannot do anything fair and right for mankind ?

  6. Agree with Rick. The climate is always changing, and humans certainly influence that change. The question is by how much and can we now intentionally cause change in the direction we think it should go.

    We’ve released so much sequestered CO2 that it’s hard to argue that our collective actions have had no effect on the climate. But the world has natural healing processes that we shouldn’t ignore.
    Entropy alone will balance the climate and compensate for our actions, the only question being where will it wind up? It’s that fear driving the climate diehards I think.

  7. Once you have a slogan that means at best nothing, at worst something other than what it says, THEN you are in trouble.
    If Climate did not “:change” the word “climate” would not exist. What would be the point? Meaningless. If you have heard of dinosaurs, you know climate changes.
    So climate change does not mean ALL change, only warming, but not ALL warming, only that caused by human activity, but not ALL activity, only flying private jets to climate conferences. (joke). Language has become the victim.
    If you think “intolerance” and “zero tolerance” actually mean different things, then pass the koolaid cos you drank too much.

  8. The 1% is nearest correct. It is warming, but off the coldest snap since the Ice Age ended 12K years ago. That cold snap ran from 1300 to 1850. If you see climate graphs starting around 1850 you are looking at propaganda,
    It is warming as it regularly does and yes CO2 is enhancing that trend. Look up Minoan, Roman and Medieval warming periods and you see the warming trends are normal and oddly 1000 years apart,
    When the climate models are regressed using “settled science” starting at 1900 to current they predict COLDER weather than we have now, which means there is something “underneath” CO2 at work, something natural and cyclical. Life on the world is still more threatened by cold than heat. During the Big Ice age plant life almost became extinct due to low CO2. Adapt to change. Capture CO2 if you like, because one day it might save us.

  9. This type of poll proves:
    A) most people believe what they are told. If told constantly they believe it’s fact.
    B) most people do little to no research.

    If anyone with a 1950s to 1980s education did any research for a day they would conclude that the Climate changes as a direct relationship with the Sun and not something that is a minuscule element in our atmosphere.
    They would also celebrate it increasing in amount as plants grow better..

    A & B hold true for 90% of all items published by the MSM.

  10. The right answer here for all needs is for the Hole World to start engineering and burning Hydrogen .. Burning Hydrogen produces water molecules and if on a Global scale used and manufactured to burn and turn electric turbines and to power vehicles this over all use would put enough moisture molecules in atmosphere to weight down Co2 ( Gravity molecule changes ) And in the summer months more of the Sun’s heat in upper atmosphere can be lessened ( Sun’s Rays will burn off water vapor molecules ) with more moisture molecules being produced, All this New manufacturing of salt water to Hydrogen Gas is a Dynamo energy constant for all needs and benefits in a sphere (( Planet Earth )) You don’t need to search out heavy hydrogen atoms from salt water. Just use electrolysis to salt water to extract Hydrogen and store it as liquid hydrogen for needs..A Extra shafts and sun gears can devote ( Turn ) Extra electrical turbine devoted to electrolysis for more sea water to more hydrogen dynamo systems..{ Energy = Subgroups Pi, } This all above should have been figured out and implemented in the 1970’s on this planet.. And there are cheaper Hydrogen engines that can be engineered as well for all needs…
