- Stanford’s Jon Krosnick’s New poll shows two-thirds of Americans want a refundable carbon tax
Stanford University-Resources for the Future poll asked that question. The results, released today, show that two-thirds of Americans support making corporations pay a price for carbon pollution, provided the revenues are redistributed, i.e., made revenue-neutral. - The poll was supervised by RFF university fellow Jon Krosnick, who has been polling Americans on climate change for two decades as head of Stanford’s Political Psychology Research Group.Posted July 2, 20128:49 PM by Marc Morano | Tags: krosnick, mediacd, polling
- NYT cites GOP voter who claims ‘A tree fell on my house’ due to global warming to hype new poll
American Thinker analyzes new NYT/Stanford poll: If the "statistics" didn't convince you, the New York Times followed up with a personal anecdote from a "Republican" voter. Aliza Strauss, a Republican homemaker in Teaneck, N.J., said in a follow-up interview that climate change had affected her personally and she was concerned about the effect of climate change in coming years. “A tree fell on my house during Hurricane Sandy, and in the future, it might be worse,” she said. Aliza Strauss felt that global warming caused a tree to fall on her home. What is the connection there? And before this supposed period of global warming, trees never fell on homes? How many people do you think the Times had to interview to find this one ignorant supposed Republican?
Jason Becker, a self-identified independent and stay-at-home father in Ocoee, Fla., said that although climate change was not his top concern, a candidate who questioned global warming would seem out of touch. I thought this was an article about Republicans? I guess they couldn't find a second Republican to agree with Aliza Strauss.
- Analysis of NYT/Stanford climate poll analysis: ‘Cook up a poll, produce results they like, and then use it as a club to make whatever they want’
American Thinker analyzes new NYT/Stanford poll: 'The New York Times has a breathless announcement: Most Republicans Back Climate Action! Except, it's not most Republicans; by the Time's own numbers, it's only 48%, and even that number is very suspect...This is the classic way that the Left shifts public opinion; they cook up a poll, produce results they like, and then use it as a club to make whatever they want. They can get the results they like either by leading questions, asking unrepresentative samples, or just by plain making things up.
The poll was conducted by the New York Times (Left bias), Stanford University (Left bias), and "the nonpartisan environmental research group Resources for the Future". How many "nonpartisan" environmental groups do you know? The questions were of the nature of: "If nothing is done to reduce global warming in the future, how serious of a problem do you think it will be for the United States?"
This question is biased because it presumes there is global warming. At best, it's disputed. But the person asked this question might automatically presume there is global warming simply by the wording of the question. NYT poll: "If nothing is done to reduce global warming in the future, how much do you think it will hurt future generations? "
That's just like "If you don't stop beating your wife, how much do you think she will hurt in the future?" Again, the question presumes there is global warming and the phrase "nothing is done" is biased against inaction, as is "how much will it hurt".

Obama knows Krosnick's polling is fantasy. Obama's own 'dial testing' in 2013 revealed climate a loser issue. See: Obama: ‘Dial testing’ of his State of the Union speech showed that the favorability ratings ‘plummeted’ when he vowed to act on climate change if Congress refused to do so – Wash Post excerpt: ‘Obama expressed concerns about the political pain involved, saying that ‘dial testing’ of his State of the Union speech showed that the favorability ratings ‘plummeted’ when he vowed to act on climate change if Congress refused to do so.’

Krosnick Has Been Publicly Reprimanded for poor results and methods by both Gallup & Pew Research
Pew research in 2010 said 'Krosnick's [previous] survey is marred by faulty methodology. ...used words that encouraged a positive response'
Even fellow global warming activists like UN IPCC's Michael Oppenheimer acknowledged Krosnick's Stanford polls tend to skew to more 'believers' in man-made global warming
Krosnick new 2013 poll relied in part on 2006 polling data to draw conclusions about 2013
Krosnick in 2013 relied in part 'on self-completion of Internet questionnaires'
Krosnick's previous surveys lumped the phrase 'global warming' in with 'the environment' despite the fact that global warming was the 'lowest concern among all ENVIRONMENTAL issues'

Wash, blow dry & talk to me about global warming please: Hairdressers trained to talk about ‘climate action’ to customers
Guardian: A salon in Sydney is spearheading workshops for hairdressers on how to steer small talk about the weather into conversations about global heating. ... More than 400 hairdressers have attended workshops as part of a project called A Brush With Climate...During the sessions, hairdressers hear the basics of climate science and get to role play how conversations might go. They also take one of the posters back to their own salons. ... Dr. Hannah McCann, a senior lecturer in cultural studies at the University of Melbourne, is researching the social and emotional role that hairdressers have with their clients. She says the hours at a time spent together, and the fact there’s plenty of touching, makes the relationship different from almost any other. ...
Garcia tells a story about one regular client, a mother of two. After having the climate chat and talking about solar power and ethical banking, she left happy. “She came back eight weeks later and she’s made all these changes. She was really proud."
WaPo: Why climate ‘doomers’ are replacing climate ‘deniers’ – ‘How UN reports & confusing headlines created a generation of people who believe climate change can’t be stopped’
Wash Post: There are different flavors of doomers. Some are middle-aged and have been influenced by outspoken scientists — like retired ecologist Guy McPherson — who claim that human extinction, or at least the breakdown of society, is imminent. (“I can’t imagine that there will be a human left on the Earth in 10 years,” McPherson has said.) These doomers drift toward conspiracy theories, sometimes claiming that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is downplaying the seriousness of the issue. ...
Another climate activist: "The most difficult think I face being a 'climate doomer', is recognizing the shear pointlessness of everything that isn't focused on mitigation or limitation. Earning money to pay bills seems utterly ludicrous, I should be growing veg and collecting rainwater."
