Public support for environmentalist rhetoric and political activity is collapsing dramatically. A new Gallup poll finds that the number of Americans who identify themselves as “environmentalists” has dropped over the last twenty-five years from seventy-eight percent in 1991 to just forty-two percent in 2016.
Just over one-third of Americans (the Democrat base) are concerned about global warming. The poll also shows that concern over air pollution has dropped by eighteen percent over the last quarter-century to just forty-three percent. Americans consistently rank global warming approximately dead-last among their priorities, and have for many years.
Meanwhile, yet another federal agency has now been caught blatantly doctoring its data to rescue the crumbling alarmist narrative from actual science. This time, it is the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). In a brazen attempt to simply reverse the record and re-write the past, the NSIDC arbitrarily manipulated its charts to create the erroneous impression of record melting at the polar ice caps, when the evidence in fact shows the opposite…all while quietly purging all the old maps that show the true story from its archives.
Breitbart.com adds: “NSIDC must know that what they are doing is unethical. Why else would they have gone to the trouble not just of deleting their old records – but of trying to block the auto-archiving of that data?” It should be no wonder at this point why the American people are turning against these corrupt, biased ideologues as they get caught in one lie after another.
This is not the first time environmentalists have been exposed trying to force the evidence to match absurd liberal fear-mongering (see also the scandalous doctoring of data by NASA, the wildly exaggerated claims of the NOAA, and numerous other climate scandals). And it is certainly not the first time Obama’s incredibly politicized government has been caught abusing its power to advance a partisan agenda (targeting conservative groups, criminalizing dissent, retaliating against Republican donors, etc.).
Facts are stubborn things. Despite the left’s beloved (debunked) “consensus” fallacy and its relentless attempts to intimidate, marginalize, and even forcibly silence all debate on this, the facts continue to show that climate alarmists represent only the lunatic fringe, and that their claims blatantly contradict all known evidence.
