Skip to comments.The Coming Global Warming Voter Backlash
Posted on 04/04/2013 4:35:03 AM PDT by Moseley
News is breaking out all over: global warming stopped 20 years ago.
A political earthquake has resulted from a feature story in the Economist magazine because the Economist used to be a consistent cheerleader for global warming activism. Doubts about global warming used to be censored by its London editors, one reporter confided to Stephen Hayward.
So what will voters do to Democrat candidates in 2014 and 2016 when the former realize that the Democratic Party was lying to them? Is it time to run away from the issue for Democrats, journalists, and Hollywood personalities?
While our economy is struggling and our nation in debt, Democrats squandered tens of billions on a climate change hoax. How many voters are unemployed due to climate change polices? Unnecessary regulations are strangling people's jobs and their lives. And then one must wonder: what else were Democrats unbelievably wrong about?
Can Democrats hide by claiming that climate change hysteria was an innocent mistake? It was never a credible story. Democrats, journalists, and liberal commentators went way out on a limb. Like the collapse of ENRON or Bernie Maddoff's Ponzi schemes, political fortunes have been built on the shifting sand of bad science. Japan's Society of Energy and Resources in February 2009 declared the myth of man-made global warming to be like "ancient astrology."

Algore is laughing all the way to the bank.
“tens of billions” is way understating the cost of this globalist social control program
You would think the Republicans would be making a big point of the fact that we have not had any warming in 20 years. They are apparently too afraid they will be hammered more as being anti-science if they should do so. There are good reasons why they are called the stupid party.
Linsey Graham is typical- a RINO global warmist
He has lots of company and yeah, they run the GOP
Saving the planet makes such good campaign fodder
They will find a way to spin any anti-Global-Warming evidence into talking points that cast Conservatives as evil, mean, idiotic or whatever will work.
(Herr Goebbles would be proud.)
Nothing will happen to the D’s.
They stop talking about it and the low information voters stop thinking about it.
There was Pinatubo in 91 supressing global temperature through around 93. Since then we have had rises in global temperature so your claim doesn't look correct.
The better thing to do is to point out that the chicken littles predicted much more warming that has failed to materialize. Also with the amount we do see in the graph above, it leads to 1.3C in the next century if it keeps going up linearly (unlikely since we are in a warm "stable state"). The most likely outcome of not having the extra CO2 would be a plunge into the cold state which we definitely do not want.
Especially when your typical "liberal" has a primary driving motivation of feeling good about himself as a good person.
It’s too bad that we can’t dig to the root of their agenda and expose it to everyone.
It’s far too evil for your average LIV to accept and believe.
So when will the pseudo-science scammers be hauled into court to answer for all the grant money they looted from national treasuries? Can relatives of the elderly in Britain sue these criminals, who foisted their tainted studies on the gullible government, which then instituted carbon taxes that are so high that thousands of the old Brits died of hyperthermia in their apartments?
Why shouldn’t science scammers be prosecuted just as any other scammers would be?
American Progressives are not going to give up their cult religion, Global Warming easily. The schools are filled with the agenda pushers, that isn’t going to change anytime soon.
Globull warming stemmed from an anti-capitalist agenda.
It’s just another spread the wealth hoax in which a few of the politically connected elite get rich and everyone else suffers.
Bjorn Lomborg’s documentary, “Cool It” (available for free on Netflix) exposes numerous ways the money spent on this hoax could have been better spent to improve the lives of millions.
So then they will stop broadcasting all those documentaries that take you to beautiful places all over the world and in final 5 minutes say “but Global Warming could destroy all this blah blah.”
Sadly, not so much. The set of Voters is way bigger than the set of Thinkers, and not all the Thinkers bother to vote.
IOW, I'll believe in a voter backlash when I see it. I've been let down by wishful thinking (and common sense) before.
I am old enough to remember when “global warming” was global cooling and we had to do something about the next ice age.
First, I have no doubt that the temperature of the earth changes. Where I am living once was under a glacier. If it was not for the earth getting warmer, I would be freezing with all that ice.
The big lie is that man has anything to do with the change in climate (well I will concede that big cities can change the micro climate in and around the city, but that is not the same as changing world climate).
The entire fight against climate change is nothing more than a way to control people. More rules and regulations as well as a means of wealth distribution from those that work and earn to those that are friends with those that are in power.
TO #18: Very droll. Amusing. However, as for the backlash, don’t rule out the value of getting skittish politicians to run away in fear. Wink, wink
Hahahha. Me too. Weren't the 70's great?
Seriously. We are in an interglacial phase, that means we are between ice ages. Temperatures will vary but there is nothing man can do to counter the effects of the sun.
I don't think enough work has been done on the positive effects of "global warming". Northern countries will enjoy a longer growing season, for example.
Lemmings, all of them. I think they are unintelligent people only good at one thing; smiling while lying. Whatever way the winds blow, the Republican establishment will follow.
Democrates and liberals are NOT interested in facts. They do not make fact based decisions. They make decision based on how they “feel” about something.
Plus it is way more important who won Dancing with the Stars and American Idol. After all they elected Taylor Hicks as POTUS.
(in other words, they KNEW all along it was a hoax! but they used that to get the changes they wanted.)
or, simply put.
The means, justify the ends.
Never underestimate the continued gullibility of the low information voter especially when they have been fed this global warming BS for decades by the media and in our schools. The global warming cultists have shifted gears and now call it “climate change” and use the same old man caused increases in CO2 in the atmosphere to explain everything including now global cooling.
Humanity crossed from superstition to the scientific era when Sir Francis Bacon publicized "The Scientific Method." This requires hard data from controlled experiments, which are independently repeated. But we now have "science by press release." Political activists calling themselves scientists offer raw opinion and speculation. And now Western civilization is in deep trouble. We are sinking back into superstition, in which elite priests tell us what to think.
I’ve already seen it. The internet led to more people reading online instead of cutting down trees to make newspapers and books. More trees = fewer green house gases in the air = less warming than expected.
The internet saved the planet, in their opinion and explains the lack of global warming since it took off.
