NPR Seems Pretty Upset That Most Republicans Prioritize The Economy Of The Climate Crisis (scam)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

How dare these Republicans care more about the economy!!!!!

Three-quarters of Republicans prioritize the economy over climate change

It’s hot. And some apparently don’t mind it that way.

The latest heat wave is fueled by human-caused climate change from burning fossil fuels, but despite the settled science, the overwhelming evidence and the billions of dollars in increases for disaster preparation and recovery that climate change is costing the country, Republicans have grown more skeptical of the need to prioritize fixing it, according to the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll.

The wide-ranging survey of 1,285 adults also found some of the most critical institutions in the country being held in low regard and that President Biden has some glaring vulnerabilities, especially when it comes to the economy, heading into the 2024 presidential election.

Overall, a majority of respondents – 53% – said addressing climate change should be given priority even at the risk of slowing the economy. That included 80% of Democrats and 54% of independents.

But almost three-quarters of Republicans (72%) said the economy should be given priority, even at the risk of ignoring climate change. That is up 13 points since 2018 – despite the increases in climate-change-related weather disasters.

All this tells me is that 80% of Democrats and 54% of Independents, and 28% of Republicans, are idiots, and should have their own economic activity curtailed. Because it’s easy to say you favor Doing Something over the economy in theory, but, once it starts impacting your own life things change quickly. Once they’re money is being sapped away, cannot afford to travel, energy, food, stream all their shows, watch all those TikTok vids, etc, well, reality will smack them in the face. Kinda like how Squad member Pramila Jayapal is totally against border wall, but, needs that wall at her house. Like how so many French citizens were great with Doing Something, and then learned that something was higher food costs and no longer allowed to take short haul flights (though the Elites are allowed on private jets).

Really, the Progressives see only 18% want to prioritize economic growth. How would that work out in practice?

And yet despite all the evidence, Trump has lied and called climate change a “hoax” and implied that it would only “may affect us in 300 years” and only see a sea level rise of 1/8 inch.

So, essentially, NPR is showing their stripes as a hardcore partisan outlet. Not that we didn’t know that.

Anyhow, the poll forgot to ask relevant questions like “how much are you willing to pay to deal with ‘climate change’?” and “what are you doing in your own life?”

The poll itself is here, since PBS didn’t bother linking it. I guess they didn’t want to show certain data, like that it was a D/R/I breakdown of 35/29/34, meaning Ds and Is were oversampled.
