Skip to comments.Poll finds New Yorkers convinced of climate change

Siena College spokesman Steve Greenberg says the poll finds 69 percent of voters from every part of the state think the severe storms , including Sandy and Irene over the past two years, are because of global climate change.
"There is no doubt that the voters of this state, that the people of New York, believe that climate change is impacting their lives in a serious way," said Greenberg. "Only 24 percent think that these are random, isolated weather patterns."
We’ve been overrun by idiots!”
...New York has been overrun by idiots. In VA there are few that believe this BS.
I got up this morning and the climate changed. Damn.
"We've got to stop global warming, they told us in high school this was going to happen."
Hard to blame the kids if it's offered up as "science". Probably everybody under 30 has had this indoctrination.
They dint axe me !
do they sprinkle stupid dust in the waters of NYC?
Climate DOES in fact change. Has been changing for millions and billions of years.....long before there were any humans on the planet.
P.S. Two of the other links about fracking worked. I'm 3 for 3 on those links. One had a good graphic about fracking.
Yeah well, New Yorkers voted for bloomers and cuomo and le blam, so what do THEY know?
Panicked lib: “We’ve gotta stop global warming!”
Sure, sure, Holmes, but I gots some questions for yuz...
Just how ya gonna do that?
What’s it going to cost, both directly and indirectly in our economy?
What is the timeline over which the plan will work?
How do you quantify whether your idea is working?
What will you do if it doesn’t measurably work in your timeline?
Once we get some concrete answers to those questions,
we can talk about “stopping global warming”.
“In VA there are few that believe this BS.”
On Nov 6 VA went for Obama. If they get hit hard by a storm I’m guessing they’ll start screaming about “climate change” too.
This, from my leftist-infested alma mater’s very radio station. I look forward to watching as this winter delivers Canton its just (frozen) desserts.
Poll finds New Yorkers dumb as ever and getting dumber.
It is obvious a majority of NYers are brainwashed minions based on their voting habits. They are no different than the braindead jihidis from moslem areas where they do the bidding of even more moronic leaders and teachers.
We may be beyond the point of no return.
Yes, in my days in Elementary School they taught us about the “greenhouse effect” as fact which was my first bit of exposure to Al Gore’s theory. I only had one person who gave us a more dissident POV of the debate who was a professor in Oceanography. Otherwise it has, usually, been about the greenhouse effect, global warming, climate change, UV rays and dangerous CFCs, saving the rainforest.
The topic is probably the one that will be most exposed to kids. Look at movies like Ferngully, or that recent family movie about Brendan Fraser. Look at the Captain Planet cartoon. It is so hard to escape this kind of indoctrination.
There may be something to this. Over the past several weeks, the average daily temperature in NYC is considerably cooler than it was just 4 or 5 months ago.
Going naively by the common meaning of the two words, Climate and Change, there really is no "belief" necessary, any more than with the existence of gravity or electricity. They are each simple, easily understood and verified facts. The simple fact that the climate changes is not seriously disputed by anyone.
But like all the rest of the litany of liberal catch phrases perverted from their apparent meaning, we need someone to provide the hidden definition. It would be surprising and refreshing if a liberal would do so once in a while.
What a liberal means when using the term "Climate Change" is this: Anthropogenic (man-caused) Global Warming, a term which is much more truthful, but has fallen out of favor because of effective and factual rebuttal. It also strongly implies that strong action by the Federal Government -- or, better, all governments -- is desperately needed to "fix" this problem, or at least to punish the evil people who are causing it. People like SUV owners and other such heartless monsters.
I have a sneaking suspicion that if polls were open and honest about the hidden meanings and implications of loaded liberal terminology, the results would be very different.

Feel-good politics, education, and rationalization.
I doubt 1% of the Climate Change believers can speak to the technical merits of their position.
On Nov 6 VA went for Obama.”
...voter fraud in Va was rampant. In NY it wasn’t necessary.
its 30degrees today in Minnesota in December, I love climate change!!
The actual question:
Q38. Do you think that the dramatic storms that have hit New York State the last two years - Hurricane Sandy this year and Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee last year - are isolated weather events, or do you think that they demonstrate global climate change?
The same way Obama claims that his economic policies have "saved" millions of jobs. Just think about how much worse climate change would have been without Obama's green policies.
(Logic, put forth by idiots, that can't be argued with).
Yeah, well, they probably voted overwhelmingly for Obama, too, so their intelligence level was already established, even before they answered this survey.
"Siena College spokesman Steve Greenberg says the poll finds 69 percent of voters from every part of the state think the severe storms , including Sandy and Irene over the past two years, are because of global climate change."
Thanks for the question & link.
I assume that means it’s balmy in Minnesota for this time of year? It was 45 in Boston today.
There is not a question of whether or not the climate is changing, the issue has always been whether it has been caused by man. That’s why Gore made it a political issue. He and other so-called “environmentalists” want all countries to sign the Kyoto Treaty so they can advance their agenda and restrict industrial production world-wide.
And they claim that those who believe in God are the ones who are scientifically “challenged”.
Hardly. Virginians were in three categories, Romney voters, stupid voters and stupid nonvoters. Even in the coal counties were they knew they had to vote, they had lower voting age turnout than the black cities.
People used to look in awe upon the people of New York...at least that’s what old radio shows and movies from the 1940’s would lead you to believe.
Now they seem to be actively competing to be known as the most gullible dullards in the country.
I’m amazed that anyone but diehard Marxists still want to promote this Socialist garbage. Especially after all the evidence that it’s a hoax.
Even the Scarecrow figured out the Wizard wasn’t legit.
Toto has pulled the curtain away from the AWG scam dozens of times and yet there are still Climate Alarmists that believe every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of Al gore.
Maybe it’s like a magic trick, they all WANT to be fooled.
Karen presented her short video (along with other people who shared videos on other free market issues) at the Grand Old Picture Show held in Tampa coincidental with the RNC convention a couple months ago.
Years of indoctrination in our education and media have paid off for the left.
NYPIRG keeps knocking on my door to get me to sign petitions and give them money to fight fracking. They are incredulous when I tell them I am for it.
He’s also kept dinosaurs from rampaging across the continent this century.
Panicked lib: Weve gotta stop global warming!
Sure, sure, Holmes, but I gots some questions for yuz...
*i have the answers:
Just how ya gonna do that?
Whats it going to cost, both directly and indirectly in our economy?*$700 trillion (true answer)
What is the timeline over which the plan will work? *100 years, which will reduce the temp about .0000937 degrees over the course of a century...if they’re right
How do you quantify whether your idea is working?*Wait 100 years and find out
What will you do if it doesnt measurably work in your timeline? * Nothing, we will all have become a poorer than third world country all around the world with no hope of economic recovery
Aint seen you for a while. I hope you’re well. Thanks for the links.
Do you have a source for that?
This is what happens when people incapable of independent thought are incessantly propagandized.
Thanks for the ping!
And in another poll...New Yorkers are dumbasses!
