Skip to comments.'One disaster after another': Most tie extreme weather to global warming, poll finds
Posted on 04/18/2012 1:44:48 AM PDT by carriage_hill
Scientists may hesitate to link some of the weather extremes of recent years to global warming but the public, it seems, is already there.
A poll due for release on Wednesday shows that a large majority of Americans believe that this years unusually warm winter, last years blistering summer and some other weather disasters were probably made worse by global warming. And by a 2-to-1 margin, the public says the weather has been getting worse, rather than better, in recent years.
The survey, the most detailed to date on the public response to weather extremes, comes atop other polling showing a recent uptick in concern about climate change. Read together, the polls suggest that direct experience of erratic weather may be convincing some people that the problem is no longer just a vague and distant threat.

“Yes the AMISH are behind it with this evil invention:”
What? A picture of a fire? Who would have thought?
If the winter is hot, it’s global warming. If there’s a blizzard, it’s global warming. If there’s a flood, it’s global warming. If there’s a drought, it’s global warming. If there’s any weather at all, it’s global warming. Everything proves that there’s global warming. All who disagree are in league with the Devil/corporate interests/right wing cabal. Now that science is here, we don’t need faith anymore./sarc
Global warming is a good thing, I’ve been playing softball here in S.E. Michigan since early March and even played a few times in both January and Feb........
I’ve always believed that all polling is strictly opinion, never science. Studies are science, and opinion pollutes them to the point of being worthless. The leftists combine the two and call it “fact”.
I was in grade school in the early 50s, and I’ve noticed a very, very radical climatic weather shift from bitter-cold Dec-Mar snow-covered ground to warm winters and no snow-cover. But I attribute it to cyclical patterns, not AGW. It’s been going on for millions of years, and mankind can’t change squat.
Warm over here; cold over there. Just the way it is. We didn’t do it.
Amazingly there was one small nugget of truth on the radio yesterday where some NOAA guy told Hilary (vapid idiot announcer) Howard of WTOP in DC that global warming does NOT cause more tornadoes.
I kind of miss the widespread snow-cover in winter, in these recent decades, but there’s nothing we can do about it.
The Ad Council is supposed to be nonpartisan and should be investigated and, if necessary, disbanded for being political hacks for the Democrats.
He’s probably on a job search today, as a result of that bit-of-truth slipping thru the cracks. LOL.
Was it this same group of Americans that elected Obama?
The man in the street presents interesting connections; just listen to Rev. Wright, or Hillary Clinton. They demonstrate amazing logic to connect the dots for you.
Can't be emphasized enough. We spend roughly twice as much on heat as on A/C in this country and a lot of the A/C is wasted in inefficient office buildings. The use of A/C is somewhat optional in Virginia where I live, but heat is not for 3 months out of the year and necessary for 2 more months just to be able to function on cold days.
It is worth mentioning that the early warmth in March followed by typical cold frosts has caused some problems for some farmers. But that warmth came from a natural pattern, global warming can only add a degree or two on top of it and the typical temperatures in April show that global warming is not a major factor.
What will they blame it on as the east coast (who oversees all) enters a cool and rainy period thru early May.
When the signs that indicate the tribulation period only begin to become evident (Luke 21:28), we must lift up our heads because our redemption draws near.
So very true, brother. See my post 33.
Yes, part of that same 52% idiot-moron-robot crowd who voted 0bummer&Co into office.
They’re focused on the *now*, and not on the *as compared to*, so they intentionally miss the important data. It’s rigged from start to finish.
Amen to that, ES.
The left has quietly infiltrated and now owns the govt and its agencies, lock-stock-&-barrel. A massive cleansing/flushing-out is going to be needed to rid America of those socialists/commies/Marxists/statists, but they’re so firmly entrenched, it’s scary for our Nation’s future.
Tax dollars at work to enslave the taxpayer...pheh!
The left tells the public lies, and when the public believes the lies, they all say, "Look, Mommy! How science-y we are!!!"
