Global Warming and Heat concerns rise: Report suggests

Global Warming and the increasing Heat is something that has been haunting the United Nations and various climate bodies all over the world. As it seems, one of the largest democracy has also had a say in this. According to the reports, the percentage of conservative republicans who believe the fact that Global Warming and Heat has taken on the Earth at a very high scale, has grown by approximately 20% in the last two years. Well, this sounds slightly intriguing.

Global Warming and Heat concerns rise: Report suggestsAccording to a national survey organized by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication and George Mason University’s Center for Climate Change Communication, more that 75% of the registered voters of the nation believe that Global Warming has already taken a lot of toll on the world. The increasing heat is only going to affect the world badly enough beyond our thoughts.

What is quite intriguing is the fact that off the voters surveyed in the program; approximately 56% of them believe that Global Warming is an effect of various human interventions with nature. It is the human actions that have led to this globally increasing heat, temperatures and thus Global Warming.

The report states that, “Republicans are not a monolithic block of global warming policy opponents, rather, liberal (and) moderate Republicans are often part of the mainstream of public opinion on climate change, while conservative Republicans’ views are often distinctly different than the rest of the American public.”

The survey also brought out some dreadful facts. According to one stat, only 16% of the voters are actually aware of Global warming and the increasing heat. On the other hand, 26% of the republicans believe that the climate is changing, but they are not certain of the fact that it is human actions that are contributing to it. The gaps present in the society are quite frightening.

There are quite a few goods things that have come out of the survey as well. The reports suggest that approximately 84% of the voters believe that we should shift to renewable sources of energy. Out of this 75% are republicans. Quite a percentage of the individuals also believe that Carbon Tax should be levied on fossil fuels.

  1. Republican logic comes in distinct forms at this junction in history. Here are a few for your amusement: (a) global warming is real, but since humans didn't cause it, it's okay since obviously god is in on it and he or she–probably a he–wouldn't let us down; (b) global warming is real, but since switching to alternatives would suck for the economy, let's ignore it until it gets real bad; (c) global warming is a hoax created by people we don't like – usually liberals but could be the Chinese, Mexicans, terrorists, anyone who wears tie-dyed tee shirts, that black guy who works at Ralph's – actually they're undecided on the finer distinctions here; (d) global warming isn't real because it's cold and snowing still in the winter; plus clearly you haven't opened my freezer lately.

  2. It's sad to see the effects of the largest propaganda campaign ever in the hostory of man, the global warming denialist campaign, originally funded by BIg Oil, then taken up by the Koch donor network,
    However, science is not a voter thing. The earth is warming, and human emiited CO2 is the major culprit. that's the facts. The chemistry is simple and can be easily understood by anyone with even high-school level understanding of chemistry.
    The chemistry doesn't care what percentage of Americans agree with it. It's not a matter of "perception management". It won't go away even if you can get Americans to vote against it.
    Science is not a democracy-based populist movement. There are realities about the world we live on, and science is a body of techniques designed to help us understand those realities.
    Those realities are not subject to a vote.

  4. It's sad to see the masses so ignorant of science that so many fall for the magic CO2 scam. This is what happens when you have a generation of graduates who never learned how to think or what the scientific method is. Public schools have failed.

  5. Was this written by a 12 year old? How do these sorts of bad grammar and mangled scentences get past the editors?

  6. Overpopulation is the real culprit. Too many people polluting the planet.

  7. Scentences? Do they stink? Ü

  8. Dale Cutler Yes….yes they do 😉
