Pew Poll on Global Warming Emphasizes American Beliefs Don’t Matter
By Daily Bell Staff - October 05, 2016

Pew: Most Americans Don’t Believe in ‘Scientific Consensus’ on Climate Change … Nearly three-quarters of Americans don’t trust that there is a large “scientific consensus” amongst climate scientists on human behavior being the cause of climate change, according to an in-depth survey on “the politics of climate” released Tuesday by Pew Research Center. – CNS

Perhaps one reason to publish this survey is to indicate that even though Americans don’t believe in global warming, they will have remedies created and implemented by their “representative” government nonetheless.

Here, from The Blaze, in mid September:

President Obama Bypasses Senate, Joins Controversial Global Warming Pact … Over Labor Day weekend, President Barack Obama once again showed his willingness to use questionable executive action to push his radical environmental agenda. While in China, President Obama joined the Paris global warming “agreement” along with Chinese President Xi Jinping – without the blessing of the U.S. Senate.

We are apparently at a point where Western elites are actively trying to impress upon people that their democracies are broken and that they have little or no voice left in the modern era.

As a mainstream corporate facility created by the progeny of Joseph N. Pew, founder of the Sun Oil Company (Sunoco), Pew can certainly be seen as a mechanism reinforcing this trend. One could speculate, in other words, that the publication of this survey is no accident.

Three quarters of Americans might not agree with what Obama is doing, certainly not entirely, but he did it anyway. And looking beyond Obama, we can certainly speculate that the current dysfunctional US presidential election itself is part of this malevolent but surreptitious process.

The idea may be that if people are discouraged about their impact on the societies they live in, they will turn their energies in different and more personal directions. This in turn lessens the challenges faced by the world’s real leaders who operate behind the scenes.

We can see this idea at work with the IRS as well. Top IRS officials have appeared before various House and Senate committees to explain why the IRS illegally delayed various Tea Party non-profit certifications. In fact, the current head of the IRS, John Koskinen, has explained that Tea Party delays have been cleared up, yet the IRS just released the actual tax returns of one Tea Party group that is engaged in litigation with the IRS.

Tea Party groups also claim the IRS is still harassing them. Leaving aide Koskinen, those who operate behind the IRS’s operational veil obviously intend to make the point that the IRS is beyond Congressional control.

We can see the same sort of mechanism at work over at the FBI, where agents somehow came to the conclusion that Hillary’s careless treatment of State Dept. emails was not a criminal activity, even though many others have been prosecuted for the same actions.

More from Pew:

According to the survey, only 27 percent of Americans agree that “almost all” climate scientists say that human behavior is mostly responsible for climate change, while 35 percent say that “more than half” of climate scientists agree on this. An additional 35 percent of those surveyed say that fewer than half (20%) or almost no (15%) climate scientists believe that human behavior is the main contributing factor in climate change.

Pew contrasted this to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which “stated in the forward to its 2013 report, ‘the science now shows with 95 percent certainty that human activity is the dominant cause of observed warming since the mid-20th century.’”

You see? It’s US versus UN. Pew is seemingly run by the same people who own the rest of the US mainstream media, and feasibly, the idea is not to incite resentment so much as weary acceptance that people’s beliefs matter less and less in an increasingly globalized world. It is one, people must learn, where decisions are increasingly taken at a very high altitude by a handful of powerful individuals.

Conclusion: As power continually migrates away from nation-states to a globalized, corporate technocracy, those backing this migration will attempt to make this sort of decision-making routine. There will be ongoing attempts to assert and act on elite memes no matter the views of those millions or billions affected. The message is being sent: The Pew release could be seen as part of it.

    The point is to demoralize us into believing that we can do nothing. Evidently they’re preparing the battlespace in advance of what they intend to do next. Real Sun-Tzu type stuff here.

      True. Unfortunately for them, humans have a unique ability to be unpredictably rebellious at just the right time.

      Please answer the following questions before we begin a rational discussion.

      1. How does the earth maintain it’s energy balance? (Energy comes in during the day from the sun and at night in the form of heat escapes into space.)
      2. Is the physics between short and long wave energy and the CO2 molecule a biased conspiracy of science?
      3. Is the interaction between long wave energy and the CO2 molecule a biased conspiracy of science?

    There are 1000s of articles like these.
    Who is it that start Conspiracies.

    Of course Pew is apart of the Ministry of Propaganda ,it seem there is a Conspiracy Bureau!!!

    • pud

      There are 1000’s of stupid articles like this….fixed it for you.

      • Praetor

        How did you fix it?

        • pud

          By pointing out that magazine articles by pseudo science nut cases in the 70’s were all stupid. All of those cherry picked non scientific opinion pieces you cited have been roundly discredited and their authors long forgotten. None of them were science or by genuine climate scientists. Simpletons should check their sources before posting simple minded comments

          • Praetor

            Two words explain your out look on climate. Conspiracy Theory!!!

          • pud

            “outlook” is one word. Good bye, I don’t debate idiots

          • Praetor

            Good, glad to see you go!!!

          • pud

            Google is your friend..

            Weather is the day-to-day state of the atmosphere, and its short-term variation in minutes to weeks. People generally think of weather as the combination of temperature, humidity, precipitation, cloudiness, visibility, and wind. … Climate is the weather of a place averaged over a period of time, often 30 years.

            The “weather” may be cloudy and raining in San Diego while it’s hot and sunny in Bakersfield. Both are experiencing different “weather” but California is affected in its entirety by the “climate”

            Again…if you insist on proving how stupid you are I’m not your man

          • Praetor

            I thought you said, I don’t debate idiots

            If we can’t believe in you’re last statement how can we scientifically believe anything you say from now on!!!

          • JohnnyZ

            Unfortunately in the 1970s these were the “scientific consensus”. It shows how true your “science” is. By the way, there is no “consensus” on AGW / climate change.

      • Praetor

        Yes a correct statement. They are stupid articles, just like the ones we all have read for the last 20 plus years on global warming….fixed it for you.!!!

    • Mark

      If I am reading this correctly they look like all private news organization.

      • Praetor

        1976, quoted a CIA Report. Many more that quoted NASA studies. If your reading this correctly. The same propaganda machine is now telling us the world will not end in an iceberg, but as a fireball. Yes if you read it correctly!!!

  • pud

    “Beliefs” do not matter nor should they. The majority of americans “believe” in the garden of eden and noahs ark. Rational societies do not make policy based upon “beliefs” but upon scientific reason and evidence. This is why Bigfoot isn’t on the endangered species list. “GLOBAL” climate change REQUIRES global action.

    • Charlie Primero

      Beliefs do matter.

      A majority of Americans believe the absurd idea that carbon taxing the s–t out of poor people and sending that wealth to global bankers benefits the climate of planet earth.

      They vote accordingly.

    • JohnnyZ

      Are you saying that global “climate change” is real or are you being cynical about the need to take action by the elites independently of people’s needs and ideas? Or are you saying that the elites are right, because they know better? Or neither of the above?

      • If there is “global warming,” it’s not being caused by man.

        • pud

          Is that your “belief” or can you demonstrate the truth of your claim? This is the greatest fallacy coming from the ignorant masses….The climate always changes but that is NOT the issue. The issue is our influence on natural systems and the consequence of adding to a demonstrably warming climate

        • Mark

          So 5 billion people are not impacting the planet?

          Please answer the following questions so i can determine how informed you are. Once that is determined I would be more then happy to engage in some more rational debate.

          1. How does the earth maintain it’s energy balance? (Energy comes in during the day from the sun and at night in the form of heat escapes into space.)
          2. Is the physics between short and long wave energy and the CO2 molecule a biased conspiracy of science?
          3. Is the interaction between long wave energy and the CO2 molecule a biased conspiracy of science?

          • Praetor

            No. Why the change from global ice age to global warming and now just global climate change?

            These truly looks like a conspiracy theory!!!

      • pud

        Should be pretty clear what I’m saying…”Beliefs” mean nothing and should count for nothing. People (in particular stupid americans) “believe” all manner of absurdity. Should we have an alien abduction policy? A federal program to find Elvis? Rational people make decisions based upon empirical evidence not “belief” …as they should. Global Climate Change is supported by ALL the science. The consequence of non action is too imponderable to cede good judgement to the “believers” whims and delusions. This has nothing to do with the “elites” it is entirely the province of science.

        • JohnnyZ

          Global Warming as defined by the establishment is a proven hoax. There has been zero global warming for 18 years and counting in spite of exponentially rising CO2 levels, which invalidates all the pseudoscientific models, as also admitted by AGW professors. It is a scheme to enrich some people like Al Gore and push through the NWO agenda.
          And by the way, your “science” is a complete fake, including the theory of evolution, theory of gravity, theory of relativity, NASA and so on. But you need to open you “eyes wide shut” to see it.

          • pud

            You’re free to go test the “fake” theory of gravity…any tall buildings near you?

            Oh, don’t forget to take your meds today

          • JohnnyZ

            Why is then a helium balloon flying away? Something is not right with the way gravity is described. By the way, why don’t YOU follow your advice and stop breathing to alleviate us of your CO2 poison? Go F* yourself IYI.

          • pud

            You clearly must be retarded.

            Why does a beach ball float on water?

            The same reason a helium balloon floats on denser air.

            Dense…like you.

          • JohnnyZ

            So if you are so smart please explain to me the process. Otherwise it will turn out that there is no gravity, but just buoyancy. This is only a minor point though. It has been proven that gravity holds things when convenient to “scientists“ or lets things free in other convenient cases. It is inconsistent.

          • pud

            Is the earth spinning stupid? Yes or No

            Why aren’t you flung into space?

            Are the moon and satellites orbiting the earth? Yes or No

            Why aren’t they flung into space?

            What psychotic religious cult do you belong to?

          • Praetor

            You’re a funny little pudinski. Seems an insult is your highest form of debate technic. Definitely left leaning commie. Did you learn that from Hillary and Timmy!!!

          • JohnnyZ

            F*CK off you high-IQ moron. All you can is mindlessly parrot your primary School indoctrination. All your world view is based on “beliefs“ of which you accuse the others. I will tell you why Americans do not believe in AGW – because they are not IYIs like you and still can smell a lie.

          • pud

            Answer the questions

          • R1chman

            Johnny, I’ll side with pud on this. The USA is going to experience more and more extreme weather events over the coming decade – as are we all. Recent foreign policy decisions on energy security policy, e.g. Western military interventions in the Middle East, seems part of that overall trend.

        • JohnnyZ

          Actually your beloved “science” is based on blind acceptance without verification or independent thinking of presented “facts” by authority, which is nothing but “beliefs”. It is your atheistic, materialistic ersatz religion.

        • R1chman

          Then simplicity wins out, ‘pud’; ceases being so visous and engage others a little more lightly. I’m fully with you on three science. There is no debate. Informing and including others in our opinionspiritual helps to inform our own in turn, and expand others’ perspectives.

    • Praetor

      Why climate change? Why change it from global ice age to global warming, and now climate change?

      Where I live the climate has changed from 80 to 90 degree climate, to 60 or 70 degree climate, just in the last month. Along with this recent climate change water is falling from the sky, plus the sky has changed from blue to grey.

      These changes are beginning to become some what worrisome!!!

      • pud

        “Weather” isn’t “climate” You’ve proved yourself a dunce..go sit in the corner now

        • Praetor

          Well. Lets get in the cutter. You come here with you’re conspiracy theories and then you want to throw around trash talk as if that accomplishes anything. Weather is climate and only a fool would say it is not!!!

        • Praetor

          Tell us you bonehead. If weather” isn’t “climate”, why does it effect the weather and or why has it an effect like earthquakes. Tell us you bonehead all about it!!!

  • Mark

    Please answer these questions.

    1. How does the earth maintain it’s energy balance? (Energy comes in during the day from the sun and at night in the form of heat escapes into space.)
    2. Is the physics between short and long wave energy and the CO2 molecule a biased conspiracy of science?
    3. Is the interaction between long wave energy and the CO2 molecule a biased conspiracy of science?
    4. Given all other “things” being equal has there ever been in the history of the world 5 billion people changing the landscape of this planet?

    So given the science with those three basic provable theories how can one deny that the more carbon pulled out of the ground, sequestered for millions of years, and converted into CO2 is not changing the climate of the planet.

    • Praetor

      Heat is energy released. Radioactive decay at the core produces about 50% of earths heat. Heat being energy released. Than the feed back loop on the surface of the earth. Natures balance, Little sun at the poles, lots of sun at the equator. The atmosphere moves around 60% of the energy, the ocean around 40%.

      It sound like energy is everywhere and heat is the source of that energy, so a little more heat sounds like a good thing, for the billions.

      It also could be said those little CO2 molecules removed from the earth are escaping back into space and are feeding the universes balance or the universes feed back loop!!!

      Just saying everyone has a conspiracy theory!!!

    • JohnnyZ

      Simple: by showing that all your CO2 models stopped working 18+ years ago. And now the probability that they had some validity has gone towards zero. Besides: the earth has been proven to have been much warmer and much colder before and these cycles were during periods when there was no / barely any human population on it. Besides, the ancient classic cultures thrived during a much warmer period, e.g. when the Romans went to Britain on sandals and the Vikings settled Greenland, which was indeed green, but has been frozen for 500 years.

      • R1chman

        And so the fact that said models are unreliable, given the unprecedented state of the global system, shouldn’t clue you into the simple, undeniable fact that we have globe-spanning tech-based trade system that encompasses 7 billion human beings and counting? Add to that the capacity of the same global trade system to extract natural resources at an unprecedented rate, never seen before in human history (let alone life on this planet as a whole); analogies to relatively recent times as trustworthy benchmarks for what’s to come is just stretching incredulity. Where present climate models are likely heading is towards an epoch c.50 million years ago, where no such mammals as humans existed, let alone the rest of the biosphere.

  • TimeToWakeUPAmerica

    ‘Global Warming’ – oops! – ‘Climate Change’ is a product of THE CLUB OF ROME, which is a subsidiary of the following: W.I.C.B. (Western International Central Bankers), the CROWN Corporation, the Pilgrims Society, & the ‘Committee of 300’, CHATHAM HOUSE, and TAVISTOCK. (Read Dr. John Coleman’s book, entitled THE CONSPIRATOR’S HIERARCHY: THE COMMITTEE OF 300, 4th Edition, Revised & Updated)(Read the 1992 CLUB OF ROME report, entitled THE FIRST GLOBAL REVOLUTION, in which, it states: “The common enemy of humanity is man.

    In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.“ — Club of Rome, Of course, the real enemy couldn’t possibly be the CORPORATIONS owned by those BEHIND the Club of Rome, right? Humanity must ALWAYS be the scapegoat, such as in the 2008 Banker Bailouts, in which the American Taxpayer subsidized the owners of FAILED BANKRUPT BANKS, when the U.S. Government bailed them out, at taxpayer expense.
