When it comes to methods of engaging the youth vote, America’s liberal left has a nasty habit of exploiting emotion and injecting their bleeding heart ethos into just about anything.
This is simply because the youth vote, currently residing within the millennial generation, is quite susceptible to the more heartbreaking facets of our society. These are a malleable sort of American, hellbent on signaling their virtue in whatever cause Hollywood and the mainstream media hope to drum up support for on any particular day.
When it comes to the globalist idea of climate change, this means trotting out any number of stock footage clips that depict skinny, wet polar bears and icebergs crowded with seals, walruses, or penguins. Of course, these images have absolutely nothing to do with the cockamamy idea that human-created greenhouse gases are somehow causing the world to destroy itself with heat; they are simply emotional bits of propaganda that work all too well on the Nickelodeon generation that are getting ready to start voting in the coming years.
When you take a look at the country as a whole, however, it turns out that “global warming” doesn’t tend to ping the radar one bit.
In a recent Gallup poll, global warming or climate change didn’t even make the cut of things that Americans are worried about:
That’s right: It’s not even on the list. The federal budget, however – something that the average American has consistently no control over – registered in the pantheon of concerns that the average US citizen deals with, but not the “omnipresent” threat of “global warming”.
So much for that guilt trip, eh liberals?
