These are what we call low information voters. A catastrophic weather event beyond the control of anyone and these morons blame a hoax called climate change. There’s really no hope for these people.

A new poll finds that, in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, more than two thirds of New Yorkers say they now believe in climate change. they also give Governor Cuomo good grades for his handling of the storm’s aftermath.

The poll, by Siena College, finds 69% of voters from every part of the state think the severe storms , including Sandy and Irene over the past two years, are because of global climate change, says poll spokesman Steve Greenberg.

“There is no doubt that the voters of this state, that the people of New York, believe that climate change is impacting their lives in a serious way,” said Greenberg. “Only 24% think that these are random, isolated weather patterns.”

83% of Democrats and 68% of  independents  believe that climate change is happening, even registered Republicans are split on the issue, with 46% saying the storms are the result of global warming, and  44% saying that they are just isolated weather events.

Those are Republicans in New York, all 12 of them, who responded to the poll, apparently. Mind you, these folks don’t have a shred of evidence to support this nonsense, but since when are facts relevant?

    So if we geoengineer a reduction in CO2, a trace gas (.o4%), we can precisely tune our global temperatures, right? Wait. What? Geoengineering? Who the hell is talking about that? Just give us your money and we’ll get around to something. Well, not really. Just shut up and give us your money.
