The researchers found support for right-wing parties is strongly linked to scepticism on climate issues and opposition to climate-friendly policies. The study did not find a link between support for left-wing populist parties and climate change denial, but did observe respondents with less interest in political issues were more likely to be climate-change sceptics.
The study, "Is there a link between Climate Change Scepticism and Populism?" by Dr. Pu Yan, Professor Ralph Schroeder, and Sebastian Stier, is the first of its kind to test four hypotheses concerning political attitudes, climate activism, and online media diets and consumption, to see to what extent those variables have an impact on climate change scepticism.
Michele Stirling of Friends of Science: "In 2007 just three years after the SARS epidemic hit, WEF had listed pandemic as a critical risk for global economies. By 2020 climate change hysteria by the wise men and women of the WEF had pushed pandemic off the list.
One reason is that in 2019, WEF surveyed stakeholders to see what other people thought were risks. In their survey of 800 stakeholders, they included 200 global shapers kids. That's literally a quarter of their survey, asking them what the greatest global risks were and all those Greta indoctrinated youth said climate change of course. So that's like asking your babysitter about how to manage your investment portfolio. That's a big fail."
Joe Biden may be wildly popular in the Delaware Valley, but his energy policies don’t enjoy the same support. In fact, four in 10 voters in the region say they aren’t willing to pay a single additional penny in higher electric bills to implement his green energy plans. The findings are in a new poll released by Delaware Valley Journal this week surveying registered voters in the four-county area. The poll revealed that Biden has a massive 60 to 35 percent lead over President Trump, but that support doesn’t extend fully to his energy policy. ...
Another 24 percent said they are only willing to pay an additional $10 per month. That’s far below the anticipated price tag for switching to a carbon-free energy grid. ...
Republican political analyst Charlie Gerow sees potential good news for President Trump in these numbers on energy. It may be a case, he says, of where “media hype far out distances conversations around the breakfast table.”
Climate Depot Publisher Marc Morano, who stars alongside actor Kevin Sorbo in the upcoming Climate Hustle 2 documentary skeptical of radical environmental policies, tells CNSNews.com that the change to "resilient" is proof that even some Democrats have doubts about the Green New Deal:
"Pelosi knows just how toxic the Green New Deal has become to many Americans, including many Democrats. Pelosi's morphing from calling it the 'green dream' to now avoiding the word 'green' in favor of 'resilient' shows just how uneasy many of the Democratic leadership is with the Green New Deal."
Since the 1980s, 29% of human CO2 emissions were cancelled out by the CO2-induced greening of the Earth. The post-2000 vegetative greening expansion has been so massive (5.4 million km²) its net areal increase is equivalent to a region the size of the Amazon rainforest.
Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, and Narendra Modi will apparently gather in the Netherlands. There, along with Bill Gates, UN head Antonio Guterres, and personnel associated with the European Union, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund, they’ll attend a climate summit hosted by the Global Center on Adaptation. ...
We’re told this summit "will launch a comprehensive Adaptation Action Agenda to kick start a transformational decade."
Donna Laframboise: "The chutzpah is astonishing. The global economy is in tatters. Billions face an uncertain future. Health care workers are exhausted. Yet this Clique of Self-Important People™ is full speed ahead, determined to impose its climate vision on the rest of us."
In the last 500 years only some 80 mammals are recorded as having gone extinct. In his book, More From Less, Andrew McAfee, a board member of HumanProgress.org, discusses how relatively rare recorded extinctions are – with some 530 across all species in the last five centuries. More importantly, he notes, the rate of extinction “appear[s] to have slowed down in recent decades; for example, no marine creatures have been recorded as extinct in the last fifty years.”
Matt Ridley, another board member and frequent contributor to this site, argues that despite the human population doubling in the last half-century, “the extinction rate of wild species, especially in the most industrialized countries,” seems to have fallen rather than increased. While absence of evidence isn’t the same as evidence of absence, and there might be millions of unrecorded species in the world’s oceans and tropical forests, the most aggressive claims rest on shaky foundations.
