Read it and weep.

Poll Most Americans Want Politicians Who Fight Climate Change - NBC News


A majority of Americans say they are more likely to support political candidates who promise to take action against climate change, according to a new poll. Conducted by the The New York Times, Stanford University and non-profit environmental research group Resources for the Future, the poll could prove important to candidates in the 2016 election. Overall, two-thirds of respondents, including 48 percent of Republicans, said that they would support candidates who promise to do something about climate change, the New York Times reported. Conversely, two-thirds of respondents said that they were less likely to vote for candidates who said that climate change was a hoax. Candidates who take the "I am not a scientist" route and claim that they are not qualified to have an opinion on global warming also fared poorly, with only 27 percent of Americans more likely to vote for them.

As for specific actions, 78 percent of Americans think the federal government should curb the release of greenhouse gases and 80 percent think that companies should get tax breaks for developing clean energy. Increasing taxes on electricity and gasoline were less popular, with only 25 percent and 36 percent of Americans supporting them respectively, according to the Times.

OMG! too funny an NBC poll which has hidden its sampling and all related data from view... And were supposed to believe its true....

Just look at who PAID FOR THE POLL...
The New York Times, Stanford University and non-profit environmental research group Resources for the Future...
A severely left wing socialist organization...

Hide the data and paid for by shills....

And only unethical papers who follow the left wing agenda are pushing it...

No data on WHO they talked to, WHAT their ages were, or their specific level of education, or .......

They asked some very leading questions and the answers were leading as well, while ambiguous to the point of being able to manipulate the outcomes. Propaganda at its finest...

LOL....what a dummy.

The OP is somebody who would also tell us that if an alcoholic went from 2 bottles of vodka a day to one bottle, he'd be "recovered"!!

PS....poll conducted by an "environmental research group" = pollfAiL.


I'll go with the recent Gallup poll which concludes that Americans don't care about climate change >>>

Climate Change Not a Top Worry in U.S.

So not only are you preliterate with regard to science, you are preliterate with regard to surveys. Oh dear.
You keep proving that you know nothing about real science as you push the AGW religious dogma..

Show those same Americans the tens of trillions of dollar price tag, and the cost of tens of millions of jobs for fighting your "war" on Climate Change. Then poll them again, Brotch. :slap:

What are you, let 7 years old? Does your mommy know you've been on her laptop?


What can I say Orangeman? For 35 years, Ive been publically humiliating progressives and long before anybody ever heard of the internet. On several occasions, Ive experienced assault/battery from progressives in drinking establishments..............guess I shouldn't have pressed buttons when people are drinking but I just can help myself:beer:Its like I was born to antagonize these bozo's and as soon as the debate gets to brass tacks ( facts), the progressive ends up looking like a dick in font of other people.:eusa_dance::eusa_dance:Most of the progressives.............being limpwristers..........morph into mental meltdown when Im standing there with a big cheesy smile on my face and a laugh that just conveys, "You're a dick!". It resonates...........just like it does on here!!

Yes, most Americans do want the government to endlessly fight and squabble while burdening us with a 20 year mortgage to pay for today's electricity.

Concerned about the cost of today's electricity? Learn to conserve.

Maybe you live under a rock, hence.....

You are nothing more than an arrogant pompous bigot.

You know nothing of how I live. It is the bigot who makes assumptions on beliefs, not facts.

orogenicman, you are pathetic

Erm, I am a bigot because I know the meaning of conservation, practice it every day, and recommend that others learn to conserve as well? Oh my. Perhaps you should buy a dictionary and learn the meanings of the words you are using.

No!.. Your a Fascist Bigot who thinks every one should bow to your wishes and that the tax hikes and regulation hikes on coal are justified due to your green agenda and your One World Government goal of total populace control...

Go Fuck Yourself!

We have the cleanest coal fired plants in the world cleaning over 99.999% of particulates. Our vehicles are the cleanest in the world. Natural Gas and many other items give us cheep reliable power for over 500 years into the future. The only reason for this charade is the lie called Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming which has now been shown a total fabrication by the earths systems and our current cooling trend since 2002.

Willful ignorance and deception is the lefts game now..

No, you are bigot because you told me to learn to conserve when you know nothing of my life, stereotyping those you disagree with, that is bigotry.

Conservation, because government has its boot on the throat of Cheap Clean Energy production, hence we have not the electricity we need.

Electricity is now a luxury.

A luxury if you are 40 years old and still making minimum wage. For the rest of us, electricity is one of the greatest bargains of today. Even more so, now, as one can make it themselves if they choose to do the upfront investment.

warming is low on the list of concerns for most Americans.

It's not the catastrophe you fear monger control freaks want it to be
