Al Gore has gotten some bad news in his lifetime.
Between losing the Presidential election and having his global warming predictions proved false, it’s been a difficult run.
And to top it off, he just got even worse news that might be the worst ever.
After making it his lifetime goal to promote the idea of manmade climate change, Gore has had a lot of setbacks.
Virtually all of the predictions in his “An Inconvenient Truth” movie were proven false with time.
And when he released a follow-up movie in 2017, it bombed so bad at the box office most people forgot he even released a sequel.
Now, with Democrats wanting to keep climate change as a major issue in order to push massive government regulation, it turns out the people they are trying to convince aren’t buying it anymore.
A new Gallup survey shows that fewer and fewer Republicans and Independents believe that “climate change” is a credible threat.
The only group becoming more convinced is Democrats.
As reported by Breitbart:
“Fewer and fewer Republicans and Independents believe that ‘climate change’ is a credible threat; more and more Democrats do. ‘Global warming’, it is becoming increasingly clear, is a political issue and not a scientific one.
This shift is shown in the latest Gallup survey.
Here are some of the findings:
Ninety-one percent of Democrats and 33% of Republicans say they worry a great deal or fair amount about global warming, but 67% of Republicans worry only a little or not at all.
While 82% of Democrats think global warming has already begun to happen, only 34% of Republicans agree. Rather, 57% of Republicans think it will not happen in their lifetime (25%) or will “never happen” (32%).
About seven in 10 Republicans (69%) think the seriousness of global warming is exaggerated in the news, 15% think it is generally correct and 15% say it is generally underestimated. Democrats, however, are much more likely to think the seriousness of global warming is underestimated (64%) or correct (32%), and just 4% say it is exaggerated.
Eighty-six percent of Democrats versus 42% of Republicans think most scientists believe global warming is occurring. The percentage of Republicans who say most scientists believe this is down 11 percentage points since last year.
Almost nine in 10 Democrats say increases in the Earth’s temperature over the last century are due to human activities more than natural changes in the environment. Just 35% of Republicans agree, while 63% attribute the temperature increases to natural environmental causes.
Four in five Republicans do not think global warming will pose a serious threat to them in their lifetime; two-thirds of Democrats think it will.”
Despite making climate change a major priority, the only people Democrats seem to be convincing are other Democrats, most of whom already believed their claims.
If Al Gore’s claims in his “An Inconvenient Truth” movie had been true, perhaps the results would be different.
But as it turns out, the climate change issue has nothing to do with science, and everything to do with politics.
