42% Say Climate Change Bill Will Hurt The Economy

Add to Technorati Favorites

 Americans have mixed feelings about the historic climate change bill that passed the House on Friday, but 42% say it will hurt the U.S. economy.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 19% believe the climate change bill passed by the House on Friday will help the economy. Fifteen percent (15%) say it will have no impact, and 24% are not sure.

But what is somewhat more telling, in my opinion, is the fact that there is a huge divide between Mainstream America and the “political class”.

The divide on the question between populist or Mainstream America and the Political Class is a wide one. Fifty percent (50%) of Mainstream Americans say the climate control measure will hurt the economy, but two-thirds of the Political Class (67%) say it will help.

That shows the utter disconnect of the political people in Washington. Predictions are from 200k to 850k jobs lost, most new jobs created by this bill will be temporary and the new energy sources that are being touted (solar and wind for the most part) will not be that effective.

Listening to Fox earlier, I heard a Republican make the astounding comment that “most people” are concerned about carbon emissions. Personally, I really hadn’t thought about it until this bill came up, especially with the air standards already in place.

Considering that the temperature has been shown to go up POINT 6 degrees since 1850 and DOWN POINT 7 degrees in the last 11 years – WHAT is this massive threat they are speaking about? The Dem on the same show boldy stated that the “world is warming, the waters are rising…” 

Why is it there are more and more people moving away from this RELIGION of environazis? Because they went from protecting the environment to PUNISHING the people for just living.

Check out this factoid:

Forty percent (40%) of U.S. voters say global warming is a very serious problem, but voters are closely divided over whether it is caused by human activity or long-term planetary trends. In recent months, voters have been trending away from the idea that humans are to blame.

Hmmm  – 40% isn’t a majority – and what can we do about Mother Earth releasing CO2? If half the 40% believe it is natural causes, that means that 20% believe that it is man made. Majority? Please.

So, what’s interesting is with all this info on people being  “concerned with carbon emissions” is that 60% of America would LOVE to see new plants out there to solve this energy crunch rather than FORCING us to use less electricity because know it alls are telling us something that ISN’T TRUE.

Barack – bubby – why is it ok for IRAN to have NUCLEAR power but not your OWN country?  It’s actually the cleanest, greenest and least expensive of all the standard electrical sources, makes thousands of MEGAWATTS per day, and doesn’t actually release carbon to the atmosphere? It wouldn’t take many of these to solve our problems.


At least three-out-of-five voters have consistently said that developing new sources of energy is more important than reducing the amount of energy Americans now consume.

Bet you won’t hear Congressional Socialists like Chucky “GonnaGetcha” Schumer touting THESE poll numbers.

  2. Great article!! Global warming is something the Dems came up with to make money. Its nothing more than a farse. The Libs always have to make a catastrophe out of nothing-playing to people’s fears.
