Not only is immigration now the #1 concern among voters according to Gallup, but some other new polls suggest that Americans are getting fed up in general with the woke fascist left. Like this survey that found that two-thirds of Americans believe that the country is moving in the wrong direction when it comes to protecting freedom of speech. I suspect that the other third also believe that but were just afraid to say so.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that a survey by CRC Research for 85 Fund found that being raised with constant scare stories of apocalyptic climate change doesn’t seem to have panicked young people as much as the eco-radicals hoped.

The survey asked people how much they’d be willing to spend to combat “climate change.” Only 45% of 18-to-35-year-olds would be willing to spend $10 or less per month. Twenty percent of the same age group weren’t willing to pay anything at all. Among all age groups, 42% said they weren’t willing to pay anything to fight “climate change,” and 18% would pay only up to $10 a month.

I’m sure these people will be pilloried as ignoramuses who refuse to face our #1 existential threat. Or maybe they’re just starting to listen to scientists who are questioning the apocalyptic predictions that keep failing to materialize. Like this study showing that if all CO2 emissions could somehow be ended now, it would take thousands of years for the Earth’s temperature to cool.

Or other scientists who argue that the sun, not CO2, drives the changes in Earth’s climate (sorry if this is behind a paywall.)

But I don’t think these young people realize that they’re already paying far more than $10 a month to fund the left’s war on carbon dioxide. Every time a wealthy person buys a Tesla and gets a $7,000 tax subsidy, we’re all paying for it.

When the Democrats pass trillion-dollar spending bills that shower money on their green cronies, we pay for it, both in the initial spending and via the inflation it causes. When businesses have to abide by draconian environmental regulations that raise their costs, those get passed along to us in the form of higher prices. The skyrocketing prices we’re paying for food and fuel are largely due to the green left’s war on oil, gas, modern agricultural, ranching and even nuclear power, which is the only reliable, large-scale source of energy that DOESN’T release CO2.

Young people who keep voting for Democrats while being reluctant to spend more than $10 a month on “climate change” have no idea how much their votes are really costing them.
