Only older Republicans remain mostly unconcerned about climate change.

I do not find this at al lsurprising.

Courtesy of HuffPo:

Two-thirds of Americans say they’re at least somewhat concerned about climate change, a new HuffPost/YouGov poll finds, with 42% describing themselves as “very concerned.”

The “very concerned” number marks an uptick from 2017. In June of that year, just after President Donald Trump announced his plans to pull the United States out of the Paris climate change agreement, only a third said they were very concerned about climate change. The most recent poll was conducted as protesters around the world geared up for marches ahead of the United Nations’ upcoming climate summit.

Eighty-eight percent of Democrats now say they’re at least somewhat concerned and 65% that they’re very concerned. By contrast, 52% of Republicans say they are at least somewhat concerned, with just a quarter saying they’re very concerned.

But the poll also finds a significant generational divide within the GOP: 69% of Republicans under age 45 describe themselves as at least somewhat concerned about climate change, compared to just 38% of those age 45 and older. There’s not a similar difference based on age among Democrats.

This once again falls along the divide between those who think and those who have faith.

Older Republicans believe that this planet was provided to the Christian people by a God who would never allow it fail to meet their needs. 

Whereas older Democrats do a thing called observation, followed by examining of the evidence, and finally making a fact based conclusion. 

Older Republicans do not worry about a problem that will only really threaten those left behind after they die.

While most Democrats are less selfish and feel empathy for other people and other creatures who share this planet with them. 

It’s simple really.

    It’s not a matter of education. It’s about what is at the core of conservatism – a lack of empathy and caring for any one other than themselves. Even their own childten, grandchildren and beyond.

    They believe there’s no such thing as evolution. That’s the error. Their belief is wrong.

    This should be expected from someone who would vote for a Donald trump to become & remain President.
