Rasmussen: Just 24% Consider Al Gore An Expert On Global Warming
Rasmussen Reports ^ | 09/08/2011

Posted on 09/08/2011 6:16:32 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Despite winning a Nobel Prize and an Oscar for his work in the global warming area, most voters don’t consider former Vice President Al Gore an expert on the subject.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that just 24% of voters consider Gore an expert on global warming. Fifty-nine percent (59%) do not think Gore is an expert on the subject, an increase in skepticism of 12 points since March 2007. Another 18% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

While a plurality of Democrats (43%) considers Gore an expert on global warming, most Republicans (80%) and voters not affiliated with either major political party (65%) disagree.

Gore may disagree, but most voters believe solar activity has an impact on global cooling and warming. A narrow plurality gives human activity the edge over sun activity, though, when it comes to which one has a bigger impact on the problem.

Gore is viewed at least somewhat favorably by 40% of voters, with 14% holding a Very Favorable opinion of him. Fifty-three percent (53%) regard him at least somewhat unfavorably, including 38% with a Very Unfavorable view.

He’s not an expert on Global Warming.

He’s the Pope of Global Warming.

I am an Earth Scientist.

I seek the truth, truth that can be tested by my peers.

What peer-reviewed articles on the tested cause and effect of CO2 on air temperature has Algore published?

I am waiting - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - .

I can’t wait any longer, Green Bay is leading New Orleans 21-7. Gotta go!

Gore should run on a third party ticket, he can get 24% of the vote if there are that many morons.

I would suspect a high percentage of the 24% is or has been institutionalized. Citing a Nobel prize these days is a good punch line.

The man is an academic dunce.

He’d have a D average studying underwater basket weaving.

There is less creativity in his small brain than there is in the Obamaloon.

He couldn’t hold a real job....anywhere.

The fact that he’s an ex senator and ex VP should tell us more about us than him.

I guess the other 76% haven’t seen “An Inconvenient Truth.”

The 24% who think Gore is a climate expert, probably also believe the Easter bunny is real and Obama is really helping the economy.

Yes, but unfortunately those 24% are made up of dimwits who occupy the world’s most powerful positions, particularly in Washington, Hollywood, academia, media, activist groups, the U.N., and Euro-socialist entities.
