Climate Change

A recent survey indicates that the continuous use of fear tactics is becoming less effective in addressing the issue of climate change.

Survey

In a recent survey, 2,230 American adults were presented with a list of topics and asked to assess their significance. Surprisingly, “climate change” ranked low on the list, with only 45 percent deeming it “very important,” similar to the rating for “issues of race and diversity,” which stood at 40 percent.

Top-ranking issues

In contrast, the top-ranking issues on the list were the economy (82 percent), inflation (79 percent), and crime (65 percent), as per the recent CBS News poll conducted by YouGov. When faced with tangible challenges, the significance of perceived or less pressing issues tends to diminish.

Majority of Americans

CBS News has highlighted that a “big majority of Americans support U.S. taking steps to reduce climate change,” however, their survey indicates that participants had more urgent concerns. Nowhere in the discussion is there any mention of specific actions that people are particularly urging the government to take regarding climate change.

Ongoing efforts

This target has already been exceeded, despite ongoing efforts to address climate change through measures like taxation. The argument presented is that governments have not implemented stringent measures or collected sufficient funds to tackle the issue effectively, which raises questions about their approach.

Lack of distinction

According to YouGov’s survey, voters expressed a lack of distinction between the climate change strategies of Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Additionally, over half of the respondents stated that the policies of the winning candidate in the November election, whether Biden or Trump, would have no impact on addressing climate change.

Biden's environmental policies

In a targeted inquiry about Joe Biden’s environmental policies, respondents only favored those related to tax rebates, as it is generally appealing for individuals to have less of their money taken by the government.

More regulations

They also favored “more regulations to reduce toxic chemicals in drinking water.” An overwhelming 70 percent of individuals supported that particular policy. Poison prevention emerged as the most favored policy proposal in the entire survey, despite being unrelated to climate change.

Concerning issues

However, there are more concerning issues than mere ineffectiveness. For example, there is the possibility of implementing a federal carbon tax, similar to the one imposed by Canada’s Liberal Party Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, which has led to significant inflation as the tax is integrated into every aspect of the supply chain. The European Union has also introduced a comparable tax.

US government

The US government appears to be aware of the situation and is not eager to jeopardize its economy over climate change. On the contrary, the U.S. seems to view the world as full of opportunities for exploitation.

Inflation Reduction Act

The Inflation Reduction Act proposed by Biden was framed as a climate-focused measure, but its primary purpose appears to be attracting foreign “green” companies to establish operations in the United States.

Carbon tax

The United States does not implement a carbon tax; instead, it offers tax credits to companies that “capture” or “sequester” the carbon.
