Last Friday, President #Obama urged a boisterous crowd of mostly Florida students to get out and vote Democratic, saying #Climate Change was the number one reason to elect #Hillary Clinton. But despite his entreaties, it’s unclear if the millennial generation even worries that temperatures have gone up less than one degree since 1900. Democrats believe climate change is the defining issue with the smartphone generation and are pushing the matter hard.
Born around 2000, most millennials haven’t experienced any warming due to the well-acknowledged global warming pause. Temperatures went up about 15 months ago due to a strong, naturally occurring El Niño, and are already drifting back to normal thanks to a forecasted La Niña. A La Niña is characterized by cooler-than-average sea surface temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean while an El Niño is the exact opposite.

Analysists think getting millennials to vote will be difficult as climate change isn’t their number one issue, despite Clinton making it a top-tier issue in her campaign. Clinton even trotted out Al Gore to tout the dangers of climate change in the battleground state of Florida. The problem is millennials are more concerned about legalizing marijuana than global warming, according to the recent surveys.
