(3 of 3) Voters think Republican climate dissenters are ‘ignorant, out of touch or crazy,’ bipartisan poll finds

Via: Raw Story

Results show risks that deniers in Congress pose to GOP as majority of younger constituents back Obama’s carbon plans.

Republicans in Congress who reject the science behind climate change could soon be reduced to political fossils, with new polling on Wednesday suggesting three-quarters of young voters find such views: 1) ignorant 2) out of touch 3) or, BAT-SHIT INSANE!.

The bipartisan poll conducted for the League of Conservation Voters found SOLID 80% SUPPORT among UNDER-35 VOTERS for Barack Obama’s climate change plan – and majority support even among those who oppose the president.

The GOP continues to piss-off: Latnos, women, labor, poor and middle income people, LBGT, and the young voters.

They still can count on the ‘Angry White Male’, but even so, I give ’em 10-years, on the outside.

“Think of the Children” – Paul Krugman

Via: NY Times

Every time I hear some smug pundit or politician saying that we can’t spend to create jobs because that would be laying too much of a burden on our children, I get angry — because of reports like this:

For this generation of young people, the future looks bleak. Only one in six is working full time. Three out of five live with their parents or other relatives. A large majority — 73 percent — think they need more education to find a successful career, but only half of those say they will definitely enroll in the next few years.

~~~

No, they are not the idle youth of Greece or Spain or Egypt. They are the youth of America, the world’s richest country, who do not have college degrees and aren’t getting them anytime soon.

Everything we know says that this generation will never — NEVER — recover from the terrible job market into which it has graduated.

But hey, we can’t do anything about that; we must have austerity, for the sake of the next generation.
