Enviros Hope Global Warming Will Increase Voter Turnout To DEFEAT Trump

joe rommEnvironmental activists are really hoping, sarcastically or not, higher-than-normal temperatures increase voter turnout to defeat Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Daniel Weiss, the former head of campaigns for the League of Conservation Voters (LCV), said it would be “poetic justice” if Trump and other Republicans skeptical of global warming were defeated by global warming-induced high voter turnout. LCV endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in November 2015 and has spent more than $6 million on ads in support of the former secretary of state.

LCV has spent more than $922,000 on ads opposing Trump, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Weiss retweeted a statement from Ed Maibach, a communications professor at George Mason University who focuses on global warming. Maibach tweeted out an article by ThinkProgress climate editor Joe Romm.

Romm, a climate scientist and environmentalist, suggested projected warm weather throughout November could boost voter turnout.

    Yet another benefit of global warming. The greenies say higher voter turn out due to warm weather .
    Too bad they wasted $6 million on the Clinton campaign but who knew
    a few hundred thousand E mails on a perverts lap top would potentially undo all that
    scary global warming propaganda .
    Based on this election campaign the planet has bigger issues than a bit of warming.
