CONSENSUS: Global Warming Isn’t A Top Concern For 90% Of Americans

Only one in 10 Americans said global warming was the most important issue facing the U.S., according to a new Bloomberg poll.

Even though 90 percent of Americans did not say global warming was the country’s most pressing issue, climate concerns topped other categories. Only 6 percent said the U.S.’s relationship with Russia was a top concern, and only 4 percent said taxes.

The Bloomberg poll found that health care was by far the top concern for Americans. Thirty-five percent said health care was their top concern and 13 percent pointed to unemployment and jobs.

The results shouldn’t be that surprising. Polls consistently find only a fraction of Americans ranks global warming as their top concern. A 2016 YouGov poll, for example, found only 9.2 percent of Americans listed global warming as their top concern.

A 2015 Fox News poll found only 3 percent of Americans viewed global warming as the most important issue facing the country.

What’s also interesting is that even though a low number of Americans list global warming as their top concern, a whopping 40 percent told Yale University pollsters in early July they believed there was a 50/50 chance man-made warming would eventually lead to humanity’s extinction.

The new Bloomberg poll is particularly interesting since a separate Harvard University-Politico poll released Friday found a majority of Americans disapproved of President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord.

Trump announced he would withdraw from the accord, arguing it would transfer wealth from the U.S. to its economic competitors. The U.S. won’t fully withdraw from the Paris accord until 2020.

The Harvard-Politico poll found 53 percent of Americans disagreed with Trump’s Paris decision, but most of that angst came from Democrats.

      Rakooi, of course they do. Now ask them the same question, adding that GREEN ENERGY will cost them $500/month more than they’re paying now.
      Rakooi, your posts here are quite instructive. They reveal the weasel – word tactics employed by ACTIVISTS.

    So 10% answer a poll confessing that global warming is their biggest concern. 10% of that 10% make a living from climate hysteria. The other 90% of the 10% are hysterical. Demographics.

    Yes, probably 90% of LEFTISTS believe desperately in MMGW. The trouble is that although leftists assume everyone else believes like them the truth is that my most polls, only about 22% of Americans self-identify as liberal, while close to 40% self-identify as conservative.

    BTW, I love the photo clip with this OP. The poster with the list of grievances places “climate change” at the top, while all the others are purely leftist social allegations. Science clearly doesn’t mean $#!+ to these people. Climate change is nothing more than a fraudulent canard – a tool to achieve a political end, hiding behind the very science they have taken hostage.

    Greenhouse Effect / Global Warming / Climate Change is a hypothesis. Using a hypothesis to bleed capitalism to fund socialism, a failed political system, is insane. Feed the goose that lays the golden eggs, don’t suck the blood out of it.
