Savvy Public: Support For Action on Climate Change Dropping Every Year


The global warming hoax has fizzled as one of the hottest topics of debate in recent years. Government players involved in the hoax then went on damage control and changed the term to "climate change". Once the public caught wind of thousands of emails that exposed the industry of climate change alarmism and highlighted the hypocritical claims of corporate cronyism on behalf of proponents of the anthropological global warming theory (AGW), support for action on climate change went on a downward spiral and has continued ever since.

Americans’ support for government action on global warming has dropped significantly during the past two years, according to a new survey by Stanford researchers in collaboration with Ipsos Public Affairs. Political rhetoric and an exposee of government corruption appears to have influenced the public shift.

In a 2010 Stanford survey, more than three-quarters of respondents expressed support for mandating more efficient and less polluting cars, appliances, homes, offices and power plants. Nearly 90 percent of respondents favored federal tax breaks to spur companies to produce more electricity from water, wind and solar energy. On average, 72 percent of respondents supported government action on climate change in 2010. By 2012, that support had dropped to 62 percent.

The drop is mostly concentrated among Americans who now distrust climate scientists.

A common accusation made by AGW theorists, or "the consensus" as they like to be known, is that dissenting groups are only interested in the financial kickbacks they can secure from big oil companies.

For example, in 2008, ExxonMobil donated around $7 million, less then 0.01% of it's annual profits, to a selection of think tanks and institutes. Among these donations was a combined $125,000 to the National Center for Policy Analysis and the Heritage Institute, right of centre public policy groups that have questioned the "consensus" on climate change.

The leaked emails from the Hadley centre reveal that (now former) CRU chief Phil Jones had received 55 endowments since 1990 from agencies ranging from the U.S. Department of Energy to NATO, worth a total of approximately $22.6 million. $19 million alone came between the years 2000 and 2006.

Massaging the scientific data, hiding a decline in temperatures, hijacking the peer-review system and blackballing dissenting scientific opinion did not look good for Jones in the context of such financial gain.

Three agencies listed as potential sources of funding are UK based Carbon Trust, the Northern Energy Initiative, and the Energy Saving Trust. Renewables North West, an American company promoting the expansion of solar, wind, and geothermal energy, is listed as a fourth potential benefactor.

Of course, all these potential financial backers have a vested interest in maintaining the conception that human-induced global warming is a reality backed by science.

In an article entitled Climategate: Follow the Money, columnist Bret Stephens at the Wall Street Journal points out that the funding of climate skeptics is a drop in the ocean compared to the huge industry that human-driven climate change science has spawned.

Moreover, 100 plus scientists rebuked the global warming position so defiantly maintained by Obama and his administration's policies.

Judi McLeod’s excellent article for Canada Free Press, which she expanded from a Fox News piece, highlights how years before he became president, Obama helped directly fund a carbon trading exchange that will likely play a critical role in the proposed cap-and-trade carbon reduction program.

The charity was the Joyce Foundation on whose board of directors Obama served and which gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were “instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide.”

Essentially Obama helped fund the profiteers of the carbon taxation program that he is now seeking to steer through Congress.

McLeod also notes that The Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) has direct ties to both Al Gore and Maurice Strong, two figures intimately involved with a long standing movement to use the theory of man made global warming as a mechanism for profit and social engineering.

The hoax has been exposed and the public is no longer blind to the climate change scam promoted by government for nothing more than profit.
