Hey Democrats, Wake Up and Smell the Kool Aid, your voters do not buy this global warming hoax. According to Rasmussen, public skepticism regarding mankind being the cause of global warming is at an all time high. 50% of adults now believe that global warming is caused by the Earth’s natural cycle, only 34% believe it is a man made phenomenon. Six percent say there is some other reason for global warming (Maybe Al Gore’s Man Bear Pig?)
Over the last year and a half, belief in the Church of Global Warming’s Hoax has fell from 47-34% and belief that that any warming may be the result of natural Earth cycles has grown from 34% to 50%.
Most voters believe the president doesn’t “get it”. Fifty-one percent 51% say Obama believes global warming is caused primarily by human activity,23% think the president blames natural cycles of the Earth.
The Political Class agrees with the president more than Mainstream voters do:
Eighty percent (80%) of the Political Class say human activity is the primary cause of global warming, but 60% percent of Mainstream voters disagree and point the finger instead at long-term planetary trends.
Of course it is the political class that will be financially rewarded if Cap and Trade legislation expands bureaucracy.
Fifty-seven percent (57%) of all Americans continue to believe global warming is at least a somewhat serious problem, including 32% who say it’s very serious. But the latter number has declined, too: It’s now down nine points from January and 15 points from April 2008.
Forty-one percent (41%) regard global warming as less of a threat, with 23% who say it’s not a very serious problem and 18% who say it’s not at all serious.
Americans remain evenly divided over how urgent it is to deal with global warming: 43% say we must take immediate action to stop it, but another 43% say we should wait a few years to see if global warming is real before making major changes.
Then again if it is not man-made, there is little that can be done to stop it.
Most of voters want the people in Copenhagen to Chill out. Just 30% of adults say the world is headed toward an irreversible catastrophe if the members of the United Nations fail to deal with global warming,48% of voters don’t believe the fate of the world hangs on UN action.
Fifty-two percent (52%) believe there continues to be significant disagreement within the scientific community over global warming, and even more (59%) say it’s at least somewhat likely that some scientists have falsified research data to support their own theories and beliefs about global warming.
Forty-four percent (44%) of adults say there is a conflict between economic growth and environmental protection. Twenty-five percent (25%) disagree and see no such problem, while 32% are not sure. These findings have been largely consistent all year.
Americans still believe that our energy policy is all wrong:
Fifty-five percent (55%) also believe that finding new sources of energy is more important than reducing the amount of energy Americans now consume. Thirty-four percent (34%) say energy conservation is the higher priority. These numbers, too, have changed little over the year.
Also unchanged is the view of 54% of adults that more nuclear power plants need to be built in the United States. Thirty-one percent (31%) disagree.
Voter support for offshore oil drilling remains as strong as it was during last year’s presidential election,
68% of U.S. voters believe offshore oil drilling should be allowed. Just 20% oppose drilling for oil off the coast of the United States, with another 12% undecided.
So what do you say Democrats, Isn’t it time you wake up and smell the Kool Aid, instead of drinking it?
