At Idaho Legislature, Many Doubt Scientific Consensus on Global Warming Cause


About 44 percent of Idahoans think that climate change is a problem that needs to be addressed.  Forty-seven percent think otherwise (56% in uncertain and unopionted people are included.)

While 84% of Democrats accept that there is a climate crisis, only 20% of Republicans feel the same way.  Those twenty percent are uncertain about what, if any, action can be taken.  Our State legislature is dominated by Republicans.  We may be the "reddest" State.

It is the most conservative Republicans and their mostly rural constituents who depend most heavily on our forests, rangelands, rivers, and farmlands.  As droughts, floods and fires become predictably more unpredictable, ideology and survival will become more contradictory to each other.

What will survive?  The environment or the ideology?  In the long run, ideology (theirs or mine) will not survive an ecological collapse
