Rasmussen: 30% Say Global Warming A Very Serious Problem

Russ Steele

From the Rasmussen Report:

Belief that global warming is a serious problem is at its highest level in two-and-half-years, but fewer voters than ever give President Obama positive marks on his handling of this issue.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters finds that 64% say global warming is at least a somewhat serious problem, including 30% who say it’s Very Serious.  One-in-three voters (33%) believe climate change is not a serious problem, with 14% who feel it’s Not At All Serious.

In my mind the the only thing that this poll proves is that the majority of American are scientifically illiterate and are vulnerable to manipulation by grant seeking academics and the environmental wackos who populate the Democratic Party.  There has been no significant global warming for at least 15 years, sea levels are falling, the oceans are cooling and tornados and hurricanes are in decline, yet the general population continues to believe the global warming alarmists even though deaths from weather extremes continue to decline.  Why are so many people believing the alarmist?  Are they incapable of reading and understanding these simple graphics?   

Or they are just confused by all the alarmest claims in this video:

    I have argued with some of them on another site and have come to the conclusion that they are brainwashed or lack the education to understand the scientific process. That’s why they will not address a sound argument when you present one. What scares me is that they have the vote.

  2. Russ says:

    I agree, that fact these illiterate can vote is very scary. I am please to see the left is attacking the Republican Candidates because they are not part of the hysterical warmer crowd. Details here: http://blogs.kqed.org/climatewatch/2012/01/05/who-generated-the-most-climate-b-s-in-2011/

    On the other hand, my friend Anthony Watts blog, Watts Up With That went over 100 million views this morning. The most watched science blog on the Internet. Details here: http://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/100000000_views.jpg

    On your first link, any time they say 98% of the scientist agree, you know the whole thing is mostly a lie. Many scientist disagree but they cherry picked opinions to get that number. On Anthony Watts, it is something to be admired till you remember the population of the United States is 400 million. We have a long way to go.
