Global warming, er, I mean cooling, er, I mean climate change is serious business.
Right up there with UFOs and Bigfoot invasions.
The poll was conducted by the Democratic insider Beneson Strategy Group (http://www.bsgco.com/main/do/Amy_Levin, http://www.bsgco.com/main/do/Joel_Benenson ) on behalf the League of Conservation Voters (http://www.lcv.org/).
Sampling methods are not disclosed, except that all the respondents are registered voters, and voted in 2012. And "800 phone calls" nationwide is ridiculous to begin with.
But questions they have been asked is the best part. For example: "Just like our parents and grandparents handed us a better earth, we need to be responsible stewards of the earth and do what we can to protect it for our kids and grandkids. If we don't act now, the devastating impacts of climate change - hurricanes, droughts, floods, rising sea levels - will only get worse. We need to act now so that future generations will know we made their world safer and cleaner, not damaged and polluted". (55% said "sure"). Talk about "leading the witness".
Not to menion that "parents and grandparents" obviously had NOT "handed us a better earth", by the logic of the climate change activists. Who was burning all that oil and gas - and coal, and wood....Aliens from the Outer Space?
Needless to say, there's no shown causation link - between "hurricanes" and all that - and "global climate change" that might have resulted from our release of greenhouse gases. But the Sandy is fresh in anyone's memory....
And so on. I wouldn't not be surprised if 65% or even 75% of Americans do support "the President talking signifcant steps now". American people have the constitutional right to be wrong, as Sen.Rudman said once. But the poll is rubbish.

Go pray at the altar of Algore. Anarchists and Progressives only exist to assert their false sense of security on the uniformed masses. A lot of the young 'un's don't remember Algore and Tripper and the hoax that was censorship in the 1980's. You folk never learn.
