America Gets the Global Warming Warning
Time - The Aggregator ^ | April 20, 2007

Posted on 04/20/2007 12:06:52 PM PDT by CedarDave

One third of Americans say global warming ranks as the world's single largest environmental problem according to a new survey conducted by the Washington Post, ABC News and Stanford University. That's double the number who considered it of most import last year.

Seven out of 10 of those surveyed want the federal government to do more to combat climate change and "by a 40-point margin, the public trusts congressional Democrats more than it trusts President Bush to handle global warming," writes the WPost.

Climate change might yet become a key election issue then. Al Gore, are you listening?

No surprise since the media has been trying to scare the wits out of everyone since the November elections. I'm surprised this number isn't higher, frankly - there are still a majority of sane individuals out there.

The liberal media has been feeling their oats since the November elections. They feel like they still have some power to propagandize the masses into falling for liberal claptrap like global warming, and they probably do.

I shudder to think of the boatload of stupid, annoying, and costly legislation we’re going to end up with due to this BS. And a hundred years from now, when we all KNOW it was BS, we’ll still be unable to repeal those laws.

Rush Limbaugh was just saying that not only are some schools in Florida forcing Algore’s movie down the throats of students, making it mandatory, but they are requiring the parents to attend and watch them movie, or their kids’ grades suffer.

In other words, repeat a lie often enough and it eventually people begin to believe it as fact.

Of course, when all most Americans hear are global warming alarmism from the press and how only the Congress can take action, what do you expect.

An interesting comment in the post was the link to Al Gore:

Two of the newsier things CNN says former president Bill Clinton tells Larry King tonight at 9 p.m. ET, during their prerecorded interview:

• The Democrats running for president "are gifted people and they deserve to be seriously listened to," and "you have got the prospect that vice president Gore might run.

This is BS, of course, as China, and maybe India, have long since passed us as polluters. There was even an article that admitted as much recently.

How did the word "environmental" get in there? I thought global warming was the biggest problem of them all...bigger than terrorism, abortion, crime, etc.

Time needs to fire this blogger, pronto. He is obviously a "denier".

I'd be looking for a good lawyer if I lived in that school district. I would sue them for every penny that they have, and make sure those that came up with this policy are fired.

Two-thirds of Americans believe there are bigger environmental problems than global warming.

That’s after nearly two years of wall-to-wall prophecies of rising sea-levels, dying species and an all-out apocalypse caused by... global warming.

Two-thirds of Americans believe we have bigger problems than the Leninists’ fake apocalypse.

Are you listening, Al Gore?

Yes he was right. The sheeple are that stupid and ignorant and as such, this general process of creating chaos and crisis then standing up to solve it, has become the modus operandi of the liberal socialists.

They are just capitalizing on ignorance, stupidity and complacency. Such a good scam.

I'm surprised this number isn't higher

66% of Americans believe there are bigger environmental problems than global warming. And that's according to a Washington Post poll full of loaded, leading questions.

I think this is exceptionally good news.

My family loves the holiday of earth day. We go to a fast food place that sells beef farmed from the rain forests, that still puts their stuff in styrofoam containers, then we throw everything out the window of our gas guzzling car when we are done over eating....such memories.

Maybe we should use our entire nuclear arsenal on ourselves. That way we can punish ourselves and combat global warming at the same time by sending the world into a nuclear winter.... Just a thought.

Do not combat “Global Warming” - embrace it for the blessing that it is. A TRAILING indicator of small changes in the average temperature of our planet, is release of greater amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, both from terrestrial sources (more rapid decomposition of organic materials into carbon dioxide, water vapor and ammonia) and from decreased amounts dissolved in warmer water (gases are LESS soluble in warm water than in cold water). This carbon dioxide is an important part of plant growth, and is probably second only to presence of water as a limit to the growth of vegetative material. And without plants constantly manufacturing carbohydrates and fats from carbon dioxide, water, and sunshine (with the side reaction of generating oxygen), ALL animal species would soon wither away and die off. Through starvation and anoxia, as the oxygen in our atmosphere is depleted, and as the food supply from vegetative sources becomes scarce.

But all that is probably way too many packets of information for the typical ‘Greenie’ to absorb. They are pretty much confined to linear thinking, even if it turns out to be closed into a circle, making it circular thinking as well.

All those for the Federal government legislating laws to prevent climate change should identify themselves as such to the IRS and make their income available for additional payroll deductions to buy Carbon Offsets, and invest in wind powered turbines. They should pay three times what they do at the pump to “save the planet” and they should pay more for meat, air travel, etc. They should put their wallet where their mouth is. The government should have a voluntary program and anyone who wants can join, let's see what percentage does.

"...this is an indication of their gullibility and stupidity."

I'm surprised the numbers are not higher considering the amount of effort the media has put into selling this idea to the morons.

Once the laws are put in place to cripple the economy and these dolts are huddled under blankets with no jobs, no gas in the car, no food, light, or heat in the house, I doubt that it will occur to them even then as they starve and freeze, that someone just might have been lying to them.

Most plants grow best in an atmosphere with more than twice as much CO2 as wee see currently. One might almost say they were adapted to a more carbon rich atmosphere. Gee, I wonder how that could have happened, when CO2 levels are higher now than they used to be? /sarc

So the survey says people trust the Dims to handle something that can't be won but when it comes to something that can be won (WOT), I'm sure the results are still reversed. So this isn't all bad, it just seems that way.
