No matter how much Barack Obama plots, no matter how much Barack Obama schemes, "climate change" remains a bottom-rung issue if it makes the list at all, and Americans simply are not buying the greenstremist hysterics:
Americans are hot but not too bothered by global warming.
You can't be bothered by something that doesn't exist.
Most Americans know the climate is changing....
Yeah - it's getting cooler. And then it'll warm up again. It's a natural cycle that has nothing to do with "human activities" and everything to do with the local star and Earth's orbital patterns.
....but they say they are just not that worried about it, according to a new poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. And that is keeping the American public from demanding and getting the changes that are necessary to prevent global warming from reaching a crisis, according to climate and social scientists....
The truth is supposed to prevent us from inflicting grave harm upon ourselves.
[F]ewer than one in four Americans are extremely or very worried about it, according the poll of 1,058 people. About one out of three Americans are moderately worried and the highest percentage of those polled — 38% — were not too worried or not at all worried.
"Global warming" is something they heard leftwingnut extremist politicians and Obamedia propagandists squawk about incessantly on their televisions for over a quarter of a century without any proof or evidence, just more squawking. It's an abstraction.
Barack Obama's artificially-engineered and viciously-enforced economic depression, on the other hand, is very, very real at every mortgaged kitchen table in America. You can't eat "climate change" (and given that it's horse manure, you wouldn't want to anyway), and without a job, sooner or later you won't be able to eat anything except your own manure, or the flesh of your fellow citizens, or the fruits of White House dumpster-diving, or the insects crawling all over your dying body, or just handfuls of dirt.
Only prosperous and free countries can afford to have clean environments, which is why, before the Obama Dark Age, the U.S. had the cleanest environment of any nation on the cooling Earth. Environmentalism is a leftish boutique issue that only gains a following among those wealthy enough to be immune from the economic ravages it inflicts upon the "less fortunate" (which is to say, less politically favored and connected). Ergo, when the U.S. economy is allowed to function, greenies can sway the public since there's no tangible cost inflicted upon them; when the U.S. economy is being systematically eradicated, what goes into one's stomach becomes a lot more important than how much of a substance that goes into the atmosphere without which plants cannot survive and the global food chain will collapse.
Again I ask: Why does Barack Obama hate flora except for the tobacco (!) that goes into his (now legal) El-Stinko Cuban cigars?
Despite high profile [pulpit-flacking] by Pope Francis, only 36% of Americans see global warming as a moral issue and only a quarter of those asked see it as a fairness issue, according to the poll which has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7% points.
So much for mixing church and state for the state's benefit. I guess the Christophobes have been too effective at their job.
"The big deal is that climate has not been a voting issue of the American population," said Dana Fisher, director of the Program for Society and the Environment at the University of Maryland. "If the American population were left to lead on the issue of climate, it's just not going to happen."
The American population outside the Democrat Party is poor and growing poorer, jobs disappearing, incomes crashing, the proverbial walls closing in. That's actually happening. "Global warming" is something they've been told is always around the corner, just over the horizon, if they don't give up their freedom, liberty, and standard of living and accept slave-status in a one-party communist totalitarian state dyed the color of Vulcanoid blood, and never materializes. The "boy" can only cry wolf so many times before the villagers tune him out.
And then he will send in his own wolves to attack and messily devour them for their "lack of vision".
Just ask the French Willard Scott.
