Americans Rate Economy as Top Priority for Government
Other high-priority issues include education, healthcare policy
by Frank Newport and Joy WilkePRINCETON, NJ -- Americans have a distinct sense of priorities for issues facing the nation in the next year, with more saying it is extremely or very important for the president and Congress to address the economy than any other issue.
The enviroment was 12th in importance in this poll.So your junk science is not very relevant if it was it would at least be in the top 5.
My God the way you nutjobs make it out to be the world is ending.Hunderds of years will go by,you wont even be a memory,and they'll still be talking this nonsense.
Your facts just were not true. I made that plain. Nice try. Whether the environment is first or twelfth most Americans agree that global warming is happening and that future generations will uffer because of it.

You're lying, of course.

That poll is from January, 2013.

Polls sometimes go up or down according to the WEATHER. Polls really don't matter; the science does.

But it's good to have confirmation again that you're just a cheap-shot LIAR.

Most people are waking up to the fact that Global Warming is a man-made bullshit story.

Maybe most Leftist American believe it. They also thought they could keep their healthcare.

Did the global warming scientists get their boats unstuck out of the disappearing ice in Antartica yet?

Provide a link. I cannot find it, entering the information you have given. The latest poll I see is January, 2013.

Do you have a link?

Even so, polls don't matter except as a policy issue.. Only the science matters.

Yes, I have an opinion, and it is backed up by solid science.

We have a word for deniers too, we them "benighted".

"Consider a person who has heard about a scientific discovery that deeply challenges her belief in divine creation—a new hominid, say, that confirms our evolutionary origins. What happens next, explains political scientist Charles Taber of Stony Brook University, is a subconscious negative response to the new information—and that response, in turn, guides the type of memories and associations formed in the conscious mind. "They retrieve thoughts that are consistent with their previous beliefs," says Taber, "and that will lead them to build an argument and challenge what they're hearing."

Or

Maybe it's just natural cycles of weather, that can't be changed, no matter how much money you throw at it.

It's easier to fool people, than convince them that they have been fooled.

You've been lied to.

Use common sense.

It get hot in the Summer and cold in the Winter.

End of story.

Evidently the independents are liberals also! 65% of Americans understand that global warming will be a problem for future generations. BTW, I am a registered Republican but since the Party has abandoned sanity, I vote as an independent........

The RW activists are a dying breed.

"formentation" LOL, that it is what called when you apply heat and moisture apply to a boil! But I suppose this would be a good method of drawing the poison out of you anti-science activists.

You need to watch "Day After Tomorrow". Get the facts right.

Iceland may be underwater soon. Baseball size hail in Tokyo. The consequences go on and on.

The film's scientific adviser was Dr. Michael Molitor, a leading climate change consultant who worked as a negotiator on the Kyoto Protocol.

Progressives and Global Warming morons are a bigger threat to future generations.

I don't care what you political affiliations are. You're just wrong.

The more you try to push this theory, the colder it gets.

You know what movie you should watch? Rubin and Ed. F'n hilarious.

You know what I hate?

Is when I have a glass of ice tea, and all the ice melts and overflows my glass.

If the ice melts, sea levels will actually drop. Since water is gthe only substance on earth that expands when it freezes.

Anyone else?

Put some meat behind that cowboy! 98% of the climate from around the world agree that global warming is happening and that man is contributing to that warming. All the great science academies around the entire world also concur. If you can find a convincing rebuttal let's hear it. Please no more RW platitudes. Just good solid information.
