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."

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.

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.

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.
