For the first time since the United States entered a deep recession five years ago, 70% of Americans now say they believe global warming is a reality, according to researchers.

In a report released Thursday by the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, authors wrote that America’s concern about global warming is now at its highest level since 2008, and that 58% of Americans expressed worries about it.

Actually, I'm not one bit surprised as kids learn about the “fact of Global Warming and Climate Change” from prekindergarten forward.

The NEA has had this as one of their top agenda items (right along side same sex unions) for more than 25 years!

" For the first time since the United States entered a deep recession five years ago, 70% of Americans now say they believe global warming is a reality, according to researchers. "

This proves that Obama and this administration were lying when they said that this economy is in a recovery.

So ? if this economy actually improves ? does this mean less American's believe in Global Warming ? TWEET that to your liberals friends.....

Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place.

I did not attend Yale but even I know you can not prove a fact by popular vote (poll).

If you just do a short search in human history you will find all kinds of things that people believed to be true which turned out not to be.

The earth may or may not be getting warmer. I have no argument with those that claim one way or another.

My objection is when they attempt to claim humans can change the world’s climate.

Where I am living today was under about five miles of ice only 15 to 20,000 years ago. It is obvious the climate changed from then to now. Man has only had industries for about 200 years. I doubt that even from the 1st day of the industrial revolution to now man has contributed as much pollutants to the atmosphere as Volcanoes.

Global Cooling as it was called in the 70s (changed to Global warming when it turned out the earth was not cooling) was invented as a social experiment. A way to control the people.

As some attempt to make social changes “for the children”, those that want to shut down all economical freedom do it in the name of the “future children”.

I guess it is okay that today’s children suffer as long as some future child has a utopia to be born into (unless aborted first).

Nothing goes on forever. At the turn of the century there were prohibitionist running around smashing beer barrels(for the children). There were strong enough to get a constitutional amendment passed that turned out to have all kinds of unintended consequences.

Sooner or later ecologist will loose their hold on the American people, the only question is how much damage they will have done before that happens.

I hope that every one of us believes in global warming. What else caused the mile thick sheet of ice over North America to disappear?

Does this mean that the Stimulus and Recovery was all a lie ?
Come on Liberals ? MSM ?

Which is it ?

Is this a true recovery so Americans believe less in Global Warming ?

Or ?

Is it in a great depression/recession so Americans believe more in Global Warming ?

Which is it ?
