Americans increasingly believe in global warming, Yale report says

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!

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.

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 ?

God gave us a fabulous self-regulating climate control system that we all learned about in the eighth grade. Carbon emissions and greenhouse gasses aren’t going to change that. Short of thermonuclear war, I don’t believe man has the ability to change the climate.

Consider:

* 2/3rds of the earth is covered by water.
* When water is heated, it evaporates into steam.
* Steam rises in the atmosphere until it reaches a level of cooling.
* When it cools, it forms clouds.
* When the clouds are sufficiently cool and heavy, rain falls.
* Rain returns to the earth as water to eventually return to the 2/3rds of the earth covered by water.

If the global temperature were to rise, it should produce more steam thus more clouds thus more rain and cooling. There’s nothing wrong with global temperatures varying by a few degrees. The system is in place to eventually return the earth to its normal state.

Pretty clever of God to design this, wasn’t it?

My careful research has identified a distinct global warming trend. This is primarily evident in the northern hemisphere from March through July, although it is offset and hidden if one considers the predominant cooling data collected from September through January. In any case, I can prove my predictions to over 90% of Freepers: just check the temperature tomorrow morning at sunrise and again tomorrow at 2:00 pm. I'd bet a paycheck that most of us will observe evidence of a substantial temperature increase over just a few hours.

If you want an expert opinion, just ask Al Gore. He's a Nobel Prize winner, and he will warn you that the earth's core could reach "several million degrees" if the warming trend that we ourselves observe each morning continues for just a few centuries.

I can believe it. The country is swirling around the toilet bowl. For example, my son and daughter are in their high school journalism class. Son is the editor-in-chief, and assigned two students to write editorials about the presidential campaign. He assigned the pro-Romney story to his sister.

Out of eighteen students, my kids and one leaner were the only ones willing to do it. In fact, one punk follows my daughter around and insults her for willing to write anything pro-Romney. If she didn’t have the poise and self-determination from eight years of private Christian school and a close-knit family, I’d want to thump the punk.

She just laughs about it. If it gets too bad, 6’-3” son can his ass from the paper.

Suggestion.

When you place an image, just before the IMG SRC command place an IMG WIDTH=’50%’

I am learning

We all are. I used to use the IMG WIDTH=xxx (where xxx is pixels) command, and then one time (even with it), my picture turned out HUGE. Someone told me about using IMG WIDTH='xx%' (which limits width to a PERCENTAGE of the size of the viewers DISPLAY).

I was just trying to pass on some helpful info for the next time you post an image. It helped me (and those on DIALUP), I thought it would help you.

Well, I believe in global warming, as well as global cooling.
There was an MWP. Then there was a LIA.
Very little in life or nature is constant.

I am not a scientist, and I do not even play one on TV, but I consider all climate change to be natural, and totally out of the hands of man.

But a solid majority -- 70% -- said they would like at least a “little more” information on the subject, study authors wrote.

It reminds me of people who fret about a couple of degrees room temperature, so are always fiddling with the thermostat, not understanding that turning it higher or lower doesn't 'cause it to warm up faster" or "cool off quicker": heating or cooling is either ON or OFF.

They also don't understand the temp setting is average; and that the unit has limit switches and as it warms above that, cooling kicks on at 100%, and stays on, until it tics a bit below average, and vice-versa...and when within the limits, does neither.

Thanks for that info. I've always used the pixel size command, believing that the % command was based on the original image's size. Never dreamed it had anything to do with the viewer's display size.
