Climate Alarm is Alive for Elites and Fading for Civilians (Guest: Steve Milloy)

November 16, 2022

While poll results show voters care about crime and the economy, elites at COP27 still say climate change is the most important issue of our time.

Polls show that Americans care most about crime and the economy. And while the election results are suspiciously confusing, it’s clear that climate change is going nowhere in Congress. Biden will have to continue advancing his agenda through executive action. At COP27 more promises of climate payments are expected, but as in the past, they are likely to amount to promises unfulfilled.

Previous agreements to send climate payments to developing countries often never come to fruition. Why would any agreement signed this year differ? In the meantime, coal use increases, and CO2 emissions keep rising, but weather events stubbornly refuse to get more extreme.
