Theres a type when it comes to climate change denial it turns out and its a pretty simple one: old, white and racist.
Researchers found that American voters with the highest levels of racial resentment were far more likely to dispute the idea of man-made climate change.
Researcher Salil Benegal at DePauw University analysed data from American National Election Studies and found that Republicans with high racial resentment scores were 84% likely to disagree with man-made climate change.
Previous Pew research has shown that climate change deniers tend to be old and white.
The scores were measured on likelihood of agreeing with sentiments such as, If Blacks would only try harder, they could be just as well off as whites.
White Republicans with high scores for racial resentment were three times as likely to disagree with a statement that climate change was real than White Republicans with lower racism scores.
Benegal told Sierra Club the phenomenon may be linked to Barack Obamas policies on the environment.

Climate Change Religious, tend to be Wimpy White, “I’m well Traveled”, Progressive totalitarian Fascist, and dumb as bricks.
The only old white racists I know would _never_ talk to a pollster. :-)
Climate change propagandists are young, not smart, and inherently more racist.
This is the old Dem AntiObama=Racist nothingburger.
Climate CULTISTS all are lefties, idiots, science deniers, ill/uneducated, who also believe that DNA and genetics is a HOAX.
So the “truth” of “climate change” is now nothing but a poll, not related to the validity of the argument. As I have said before, never let the truth get in the way of the agenda.
Liberals tend to be stupid ... I find.
LOL! We’ve just been around long enough to be wise to propaganda, and resist falling for it ;-)
Jawohl mein herr!
So that’s why they always called it, “White Christmas”!
IOW, those with more than usual intelligence and life experience. NOT easily manipulated as the state would like.
The statists hate those that can reason for themselves and are skeptical of government propaganda.
The blacks I know who tried harder to get an education and hold down family and career are just as well off as whites. Funny how a blinding statement of the obvious has become an indicator of racism.
Translation - millennials, minority and women are easily fooled.
Oh good. That means we can round them up and put them in concentration camps. Civil wars are coming.
“Climate change deniers tend to...”
- have passed 8th grade Science,
- not believe in the tooth fairy,
- understand that “consensus” plays no role in the scientific method,
- understand that earth’s atmosphere is NOT a closed system like a greenhouse,
- understand that CO2 is NOT a pollutant,
- recognize warmed over communist propaganda, even when repackaged.
Oh, you mean educated and western?
Young, baby killing, lazy, marxists generally are the biggest supporters of the globull warming hoax.
Believing that blacks who work hard will succeed = racial resentment? Um, what planet does these people live on?
