Study: Climate Change Skeptics More 'Eco-Friendly' Than Global Warming Alarmists
The study by Cornell and the University of Michigan
Climate change skeptics are more likely to be eco-friendly than their global warming alarmist counterparts according to a new study.
The type people who tend to be skeptical of climate change data, which is often a manipulated, are more likely to recycle and conserve fossil fuels than those who buy into the global warming fear machine.
Al Gore, who famously flies around the world in private jets to talk about climate change, is another example of hypocrisy that stems from the Global Warming camp.
The study by Cornell and the University of Michigan found that those “highly concerned” about climate change were less likely to engage in recycling, most likely opting for social media virtue signaling.
shtfplan reports: Published in the April edition of the Journal of Environmental Psychology, the one-year study broke 600 participants into three groups based on their level of concern about climate change: “highly concerned,” “cautiously worried,” and “skeptical.”
Those “highly concerned” about climate change were the most supportive of government climate policies (meaning they want others stolen from and forced at gunpoint to pay for their beliefs) but were the least likely to report their own individual-level actions.
Whereas those who were “skeptical” of the manipulated data surrounding the climate change “science” opposed government policy solutions but were most likely to report engaging in individual-level pro-environmental behaviors, such as recycling and saving fossil fuels.
It’s highly possible that skeptics may place more emphasis on personal responsibility than government action.
As Pacific Standard’s Tom Jacobs put it, “remember that conservatism prizes individual action over collective efforts.
So while they may assert disbelief in order to stave off coercive actions by the government, many could take pride in doing what they can do on a personal basis,” he said in a Friday post.
