While the elite travel around the world on their private jets telling the rest of us we need to cut back our carbon emissions (READ: America’s biggest environmentalists and their private planes), the people living in the real world have bigger concerns.
In the lead-up to Earth Day on April 22, a CBS News/YouGov poll found that climate change was the last on the list of American priorities.
The poll found that “climate change” was last on the list of most important priorities for Americans. Respondents ranked the economy (76 percent), inflation (73 percent), crime (59 percent), Ukraine (58 percent), immigration (48 percent), and then “climate change” (39 percent) in respective order of importance.
Fewer Americans also see “climate change” as a pressing issue last year. Today, only 49 percent of respondents said “climate change” is a pressing issue and should be solved “right now.” In April 2021, that number was 54 percent, a downward shift of six percent under President Biden.
With issues like the economy & inflation, crime, and the war in Ukraine weighing most on Americans’ minds, the % who think climate change needs to be addressed right now has dipped some from one year ago. https://t.co/xnC4993y7Q pic.twitter.com/EsWIlQuTHJ
