Public Still Rejects Climate Alarmist Message After 30 Years of Misinformation (Guest: Steve Goreham)

October 1, 2018

New York's Climate Change Week was overflowing with liberal political elites, activists, and celebrities touting the need for socialism to combat climate change. Yet after 30 years, the public still rejects the message.

Author Steve Goreham discusses the fact that after 30 years of constant climate alarmist drumbeating, the evidence from polling shows the public still rejects the message of catastrophic climate change. These polls show people rank the importance of climate change policy well below other, more-pressing, issues. Meetings like Climate Change Week are preaching to the choir. While governments have passed hundreds of climate related laws, they don't back it up with substantial actions to cut the use of fossil fuels for energy use. Ultimately, fossil fuels deliver the reliable, cheap power needed for economic progress.
