Biden’s Climate Change Scare Tactics Aren’t Working


by Warren Beatty, American Thinker:

First, the stage must be set.  The joke that currently occupies the Bully Pulpit says he’s the first climate president, says he’s making history by confronting the climate crisis, not denying it.  “I’m taking the most significant action on climate ever in the history of the world.”  Now to his latest tactic.

Biden gave a warning on climate change in September 2021, when he surveyed damage caused by Hurricane Ida in New York and New Jersey.  “We’ve got to listen to the scientists … they all tell us this is code red. … The nation and the world are in peril, and that’s not hyperbole.  This is everybody’s crisis.”

While in Louisiana he said, “We don’t have any more time.”


In November 2021, at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, Biden said, “This is the challenge of our collective lifetimes.  The existential threat to human existence as we know it.  And every day we delay, the cost of inaction increases.”

In Hanoi in September 2023, Biden attempted to scare everyone when he said, “The sole threat to humanity’s existence is climate change, and that not even nuclear conflict poses a similar danger.”

During a White House speech in November 2023, Biden again used his scare tactics: “The impacts we’re seeing [caused by weather] are only going to get worse, more frequent, more ferocious, and more costly.”

There’s little doubt that our “first climate president” is trying to scare people, especially young voters, into thinking climate change has reached crisis mode and we must do whatever it takes to mitigate it — now!

So with Biden’s daily emphasis on climate change (or crisis), one would expect the issue to be of grave concern, to be among the top issues on the public’s list…and therefore be reflected on the CBS/YouGov survey.  But no, it’s eighth, next to last.  Look at the list (ranked by Very Important):

How important are each of these issues in the U.S. Today?
