They claim to care about global warming and its detrimental effects, but they actually use more energy than their science-denying counterparts who deserve to be put to death for the millions of future murders they’re causing…by believing the wrong thing. The Telegraph reported:
The findings were based on the Household Electricity Survey, which closely monitored the electricity use and views of 250 families over a year. Thereport, by experts from Loughborough University and Cambridge Architectural Research, was commissioned and published by DECC.
Those surveyed were asked if they agreed or disagreed with the statement: “The effects of climate change are too far in the future to really worry me.”
The researchers wrote: “Taken all together, householders who strongly agreed they were not worried about climate change because it was too far in the future in fact used less electricity rather than more, counter to the hypothesis that households concerned about climate change use less electricity.
“However, we found this was largely due to the effect of age, as older households were much more likely to agree with this statement, and also had lower energy consumption.
“When we separated the pensioner households from the younger ones, there was no significant relationship between this statement and energy use in the pensioner group, and only a weak trend among younger households.”
These younger and more wasteful people must think that if they just believe the right things, that’ll count for something and get them into heaven, so to speak. And that way, maybe they won’t need to be as careful. As long as they believe the right things, that’s all that matters. They can live any way they want.
As for the others, the older and wiser of the group, they’re going to be frugal anyway, and they don’t need some fixed ideology to tell them that it’s wrong to be wasteful or that it’s right to be good stewards of the resources we have available to us. But leave it to the hypocritical global warmists to tell the “deniers” that they’re all going to environmental hell, since they don’t believe in the right religion. Even though these “deniers” live better lives than even the most dogmatic global warming followers.
It’s like Al Gore and the rest of the super wealthy who claim to care so much about global warming and the environment, but then live as if they own the planet and all its resources.
