We’re Winning

The Debate on Warming, that is. This, and the fact that it is not by any margin a top priority. Indeed, I have heard the numbers are even better in the Czech Republic.

EDIT: Jeez, this is what I get for making cursory glances at new stories. There is a serious flaw with Gallup-No, not the poll, but in the way the study is reported. From the summary:

Americans generally believe global warming is real. That sets the U.S. public apart from the global-warming skeptics who assembled this week in New York City to try to debunk the science behind climate change. At the same time, with only 34% of Americans saying they worry “a great deal” about the problem, most Americans do not view the issue in the same dire terms as the many prominent leaders advancing global warming as an issue.

The major problem here is that, for the ump-freakin’-teenth time, the view that “global warming is real” is distinguished from the views of the ICCC participants, which is, in fact, the same as 41% of Americans-Global Warming may be real, but it is exxagerated. I cannot begin to express how infuriated I get by this kind of distortion!

  1. I noticed that democrats still have not learned.Their poll numbers hardly changed in all that time.


    Pathetic really when so much AGW debunking has been going on for years.

    SST: Yes, the Democrat party seems to suffer from a frightening irrationality streak-which is why I like to say “The Democrat Party is a Faith-based Initiative” although I confess I stole the idea from Mark Steyn.

  3. Since the global warmers are so ready to belive that the consensus is on their side, and therefore they must be right, I wonder if they’ll retract now that the consensus is dwindling.

    Not likely. Cognitive dissonance just doesn’t work that way.

  5. They are not likely to retract. And it’s a shame that we let this get as far as we did. I fear that “they” have the votes in Congress to pass draconian energy/greenhouse gas/emissions bs measures that will cripple the US for generations.

    Their man is in The White House…their woman is Sec. of State…their village idiot is Speaker…their puppet runs the UN. There are only a few voices in power, such as the Czech President that are not fearful to speak out and do something to stop the insanity.

    I fear that even though public opinion may be shifting…we lost this one. Dunno! My hope was that the failing global economy would make Europeans hesitant, and would make the US downright afraid to start taxing emissions, etc. .

    It’s going to be touch and go for the next little while. It could fall either way. My prayer is that we can just stand our ground until enough honest scientists…and enough oddly cold weather…can convince enough people to put their foot down with their Representatives. We shall c.

    Well, it does look like they will get some kind of policy in place, even as Public Opinion is shifting the other way. Well, I guess we just have to keep speaking out-and getting others to do so too. If the uproar over amnesty showed anything, its that a massive push by the public can turn policy certainty into utter failure.
