    Obama Climate Change Poll Finds Majority Supports 'Significant Steps' To Tackle Probl

    Obama Climate Change Poll Finds Majority Supports 'Significant Steps' To Tackle Problem

    Looks like Obama and the Democrats are ahead of the curve on another issue, as the GOP and conservatives sink into a retrograde irrelevancy.


    WASHINGTON -- A wide majority of Americans support President Barack Obama's call to take action on climate change, according to polling released by the League of Conservation Voters conducted before his State of The Union Address Tuesday.

    Sixty-five percent of Americans support "the President taking significant steps to address climate change now," including 89 percent of Democrats, 62 percent of independents and 38 percent of Republicans.

    Define "significant steps."

    Given the information provided, it could mean anything from riding a bicycle to work rather than driving to unleashing WMDs on three quarters of the Earth's population to ease population pressures. Deliberately vague and badly constructed polls mean absolutely jack all in terms of actual usable data.

    You define them -- either way, the GOP is against them, and even denies global warming is happening.

    Conservatives are deeply into denial.

    Yea, no. Reality doesn't work that way.

    If I were to conduct a poll right now, I can guarantee you that 100% of people would be in favor of sex. That wouldn't necessarily mean that 100% or even 50% of those individuals would still be in favor of sex if I were to clarify that by "sex," I meant the act of receiving penetrative anal intercourse.

    Likewise, while just about everyone is probably in favor of doing something about global warming, most wouldn't be in favor of baning gasoline powered cars or putting regulations in place which made them too expensive to drive.

    Again, without some kind of context, the data presented here is effectively meaningless. I'm guessing that's pretty much exactly what the Obama Administration wants; an overly vague blank check to do whatever they want.

    Keep dreaming. Whatever significant steps are, the GOP opposes them. They can't even accept the science.

    The American people have noticed. So it's another losing issue for the GOP. Are they any that aren't?

    It's about time people start respecting nature and the ecosystem.

    Keep telling yourself that. That's what they want you to think, and what they're spending damn good propaganda money trying to get you to believe.

    Oh, and don't forgot that Obama only wants to tax the 2%!
