Young Voters Think It’s Possible Climate Change Will End the World in 15 Years

The U.N. Panel for Climate Change should be proud, their marketing campaign worked… at least, it worked on one segment of the population.

A recent poll by Scott Rasmussen found that a full 51% of voters under the age of 35% think it’s at least somewhat likely that climate change will make the world uninhabitable in 10 to 15 years.

The survey showed that, among voters of all ages, 29% believe it somewhat likely that climate change will end the world in the next 15 years, while 37% believe it’s not likely at all.

10% of voters think it is very likely.

Senior citizen were the most suspect, with only 12% believing climate change will be the end of humanity in such a short period of time.

The split among voters also fell along geographic lines.  In urban areas, 45% of voters think it’s somewhat likely that we’re doomed by the early 2030s, while only 23% and 22% of those who live in rural and suburban areas think so.

Putting the numbers together, young voters in large urban areas are certain the sky is falling, while older, rural voters think the government numbers are wasted breath.

      Your intellectual capacity (zero) and your fellow Trumpies (equivalent to Moonies) is exactly why Trump will lose every state in the next election, and then will be jailed for treason.

      • David Wallace

        Want to put some money on that? I love an easy win.

    • Ed_the_Merlin

      I second your comment. Trump has gotten more done in his three years in spite of the media and Democrats. More than Obama, Bush and Clinton combined.

      • David Wallace

        Correction: Obama got a lot done, it just wasn’t for the American people and took things in the wrong direction. Trump has an uphill battle just getting back to the pre-Obama Whitehouse (surprised they haven’t tried to change the name) occupation. And don’t fall for “who was best President” because of the two only Trump is legitimate President. Obama was just a Resident at the White House during his 8 year crime spree.

      • carol

        AMEN! Enough said!
        I cringed every day Obama was in the White House.
        Thank Heaven we now have a a RESPONSIBLE President!

    • BWW

      Here here! The only thing Democrats care about is money and power, not this country or our people. TRUMP IN 2020

    • DONDH

      These people are a complete idiot. No one knows when the Earth will end, only God knows. Furthermore, it and when that time comes, it will be because of the complete regard for God ending in a final battle at Armageddon and Jesus wins. So instead of putting your efforts into something you have absolutely no knowledge, put your faith in Jesus Christ and you will be saved after the final battle ends, which doesn’t take long. Jesus wins no matter what!!

      • David Wallace

        On the plus side the loony left libs are going to prove the existence of God when Cali joins Sodom and Gomorrah in the ashes of destruction.

    Young voters today can be the most ignorant when it comes to climate change, they have bought into this fabricated narrative so unknowing of the real facts. Unfortunately the narrative is controlled heavily by the left media and scientists that have political agendas.

    • David Wallace

      That’s why they’ve pushed the plan to dumb down the population. They’re just kids and don’t know any better. The thing that bothers me is the fact that adults are listening to clueless children as if they have some insight into life in this reality. Guess they were on the receiving end of the dumb down plan as well.

  3. JC

    These kids are not voters . They are disillusioned children being hoodwinked by scoundrels. There seems to be no shame in these hoaxers.

    • curtis

      you are absolutely right.. these kids have been deceived and it is disgraceful that they believe the world will end like this.. we ( well not we) will be looking back at this 500 years from now. our prime minister Trudeau is crazy about climate change also…

  4. Carlos R Smith

    Tell this young group to shut up and go do your homework. Come back in ten years when you’ve learned enough to have to have a comprehensive view of the world.


    The democrats are the nuttiest….actually I can’t come up with a word to describe these fruitcakes!! I believe President Trump is the best thing that ever happened to America. Just think where we would be if the democrats hadn’t spent all this time and money on these witch hunts!! I am totally ashamed of any American who would be taken in by their BS!! A true American would never consider their platform! I’m just totally disgusted with the lot.

  6. Pj

    Young voters are uneducated and easy to brain wash. The schools they go to are socialist breeding ground. Shame on the parents and schools. Climate change is a con by Al Gore and Obama . It’s their paychecks for not having a real job. Young people you are just plain stupid.

  7. john robinson

    Unfortunately these morons believe the liberal press along with their liberal teachers and leftist democrats. Donald Trump is Americas only chance and he is facing a monumental challenge against evil itself.

  8. DonOldGuy

    The same majority of young people who believe the world is ending have been indoctrinated to believe the “government” is the solution to problems. Since Woodrow Wilson there have been bleatings that ethnic pride, cultural richness, and social advancement are independent of actual accomplishment, as long as a world government can control us.

  9. BWW

    Don’t forget, it’s these same young voters that think eating Tide Pods is a good time. Young, Stupid, and set to be the next rulers of the nation? Good grief!

  10. Herman Klassen

    Man made hystyria,where is the science?Only wealth redistribution method to make enemy strong to take over for tribulation.Very sick education society brainwashing young people.

  11. wayne beahr

    Concerning cilmate ending the world. Read your Bible, The world will end when God is ready can be in the next five minutes or in a thousand years.

    • bobbejean

      You are so correct. I, too, believe in the Bible. The world will end when God decides it will end and not before.

  12. David Blakeman

    A perfect example of the modern education system. Dumb them down till they cannot think for themselves and they will believe any bullshit thrown at them. Yes we are in a climate change, no it will not end the world as we know it in the next 15 years, and yes we need to do something about it. Remember politicians will say anything, do anything just to get more votes, the main thing to remember is that they only tell the truth two times in their careers, Elect me and Reelect me, the rest of the time they don’t even know or care who we are. TERM LIMITS

  13. Peter

    Back in the 1930’s the communist party USA had a manifesto (you can find it online) that called for taking over, among other things, the education system. It looks like they were successful. As an immigrant to this country,with only a high school diploma, I can tell you that nothing saddens me more than to see educated people who are so dumb. I worked my ass off my whole life and never collected unemployment a day of my life even though I went through every recession starting in 1969. I have heard a lot of BS in my time like “We will run out of fossil fuel by the year 2000”. I would like to know how the planet is going to become uninhabitable in 15 years when it is no warmer now than it was during the medieval warm period which lasted hundreds of years, a time when humanity flourished. My prediction is that everyone who believes in the 15 years and we’re toast theory will be dead an buried before any significant change happens to the climate

  14. Deanne

    Global warming is a natural occurrence that 1st happened when it ended the ice age and has been happening in the tiniest degree ever since and YOU CAN’T CONTROL NATURE, PERIOD. People who are screaming about “man made” global warming should throw away their cell phones as it takes a HUGE amount of fossil fuel to make every single part in ONE PHONE…
    People screaming about “man made global warming” should LEAD BY EXAMPLE & never use electricity, ride or drive a car, bus, train or plane, use a microwave, drink any form of alcohol, watch TV, use an AC, etc.,etc.,etc.,… GET IT?

  15. Jim

    Just how stupid are our youth today! Man is NOT powerful enough to change the worlds climate unless they start WWIII and everyone that has nukes expends them all over the world. Even then some parts of the world will remain and return to flourish. Get over themselves! Nature is very forgiving and resilient and more powerful than humans. I blame this on the educators who are out to place socialism in our nation so the few at top can gain power and wealth.

  16. cammo99

    So now they have given themselves a 5 year plus cushion from the prior claims the sky was falling in 190 years? Idiots. If they spent more time actually doing good things instead of acting like dupes for greedy politicians I would be more sympathetic,….but probably not.

  17. Ted Quirk

    If you REALLY believe that the world will end in 15v years then don’t bother getting a university education as you will not have the lifetime to put it to good use. Continue to spend your life protesting and apply for welfare

  18. Daniel

    Our world has seen many devastating challenges during its existence; both natural and man made. Yet, here we all are in-spite of it all! The world is a vast and beautiful place. We are but a speck in its vastness.
    It is egotistical, uninformed and unrealistic to believe that we have the ability to bring an end to it and our own existence. There is nothing like an intended, fabricated fright to control the mass populations into hysteria and irrational actions. This is just that!

  19. Ron C

    This crap has to stop…the teachers are teaching Absolute crap to the children…and they are releasing function idiot’s to the nation! The worst part they are stealing taxpayer money to do it!

  20. Guy Smith

    The thought that we humans are capable of controlling the climate is the height if hubris. (for the information of those who are not familiar with the word, it is ancient Greek for excessive pride.) what we should be doing if we believe Climate Change will have disastrous consequences in the near future, is to start looking for ways to adapt. We do not have the capability to control it!

  21. JoeyP

    That 51% sure shows that there are a lot of STUPID people out there. This is NOTHING but a POWER GRAB started by the CLUB OF ROME. Nature is responsible for 98% of GREENHOUSE gases. PEOPLE – GET AN EDUCATION so as NOT to be DUPED by these “CLIMATE CLOWNS”! . . . Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  22. William Bell

    If these under 35’s gave up their cars, didn’t take flights to vacations and didn’t heat their homes, the carbon emissions would be drastically reduced and Armageddon would be delayed. If they really believed the earth is doomed they should be practicing preventative measures.

  23. Barb Brown

    This little girl did NOT do this on her own…The LEFT is front and center…..EXPLOITING kids AGAIN…..If I were any of them I would want to live forever, cause HELL has a special place for them…….

  24. Anne Gerrard

    They will surely get an eye opening when they realize they were lied to and coerced into the democrats rhetoric. Weather has changed since the beginning of time and will continue to do so regardless of human interference. History, if the ever teach it will prove this. Just another batch of sheeples.

  25. Anna Donnelly

    Don’t be stupid kids. The earth heat up for so many years and then we go into an ice age. Some people want to twist you brains to think like them. Think for yourself and use your brain that God gave you. The earth will take care of itself stupid people is what is screwing up the earth.

  26. Robert

    Due to some natural events the coast lines will be a bit inland by 2035 but most of us will still be around. The Mississippi River become larger and the great lakes will become one. Mother Nature does what she wants and just expect a few changes in the landscape. By the way the leftist rats in CA will need to relocate as looking at the low laying areas in CA are going to get washed out.

  27. Ranger1

    If the world becomes uninhabitable in 10 or 15 years, it will be the fault of this ocean of ignoramuses reaching critical mass.

  28. Big Ed

    Someone must have used a bs gauge and got a fine tuned version of the end of the world. Just a few days ago AOL was predicting the world would end in twelve years, but now we’re up to fifteen years. This would be scary as hell if it weren’t for the fact that since the leftists switched from global cooling to global warming, the end of the world in twenty years has been offered three or four times and when the end does not materialize, they add twenty more years and repeat the threat. If some of the worry warts would study the works of some real scientists, they could throw away their bs gauge and start living their lives-but, this would end the dreams of the New World Order, socialism for all and the end of America. We citizens are missing out on the opportunity to become slaves in the brave new world the leftists envision.

  29. CA

    Young Voters Think It’s Possible Climate Change Will End the World in 15 Years???For more than 50 years Climate Alarmists in the scientific community and environmental movement have not gotten even one prediction correct, but they do have a perfect record of getting 41 predictions wrong.
    In other words, on at least 41 occasions, these so-called experts have predicted some terrible environmental catastrophe was imminent … and it never happened.

    And not once — not even once! — have these alarmists had one of their predictions come true

    Think about that… the so-called experts are 0-41 with their predictions, but those of us who are skeptical of “expert” prediction number 42, the one that says that if we don’t immediately convert to socialism and allow Alexandria Ocasio-Crazy to control and organize our lives, the planet will become uninhabitable.

    Why would any sane person listen to someone with a 0-41 record?

    Why would we completely restructure our economy and sacrifice our personal freedom for “experts” who are 0-41, who have never once gotten it right?

    If you had an investment counselor who steered you wrong 41times, would you hang in there for number 42?

    Of course not. You’d fire him after failed prediction two or three.

    And if that’s not crazy enough, the latest ploy is to trot out a 16-year-old girt to spread prediction number 42, because it is so much more credible that way.

    Sometimes you just have to sit back and laugh.

    Anyway, I want you to have the data, so go ahead and print this out in advance of Thanksgiving dinner with your obnoxious Millennial nephew.













    Here is the source for numbers 1-27. As you will see, the individual sources are not crackpots, but scientific studies and media reports on “expert” predictions. The sources for numbers 28-41 are linked individually.

    • t stahl

      Oh you got it right ! I remember all them predictions. Everyone moved south in the 70s to stay out of the ice cap !! LOL

  30. John Todd

    The Media are now resulting to SPIN, and the naive, inept typical American still believes their rubbish in spite of 2 solid years of lies on Russian Collusion, Recession, etc. Amazing what the Democrats and Media have done to POTUS Trump who is the true victim, he is treated like a perpetrator, and the true perpetrators are treated like patriots. Just saw Dan Bongeno talk about his book, “Exonerated” on Levin, The media are shameful people.

  31. John Stuczynski

    Brain washing of our children is working. Liberal teachers across the globe are scaring the crap out of the kids telling them the earth will end in a few years. All to control the population of the earth. Globalism! That is what they want. One world under one leader or counsel. Everyone does as directed or else.

  32. Roy Brooks

    Even Al Gore doesn’t believe his own hype. From the many millions he made from his tours he just recently bought a beach front property that is only 3 feet above the sea level!

  33. Richard Berry

    Well the kids who are worried about climate change are in for a surprise. By this time next year the FCC has approved Elon musk to have 20,000 sat. 100 miles up in the sky shooting 5,000,000 watts of 5G per sat. down on every kids head, not to mention everyone else. 5G is a weapon used by the US army in Afghanistan to kill rebels. Independent Experts are expecting total disaster for man, animal, and plant. If you are not up to
    speed on this, I suggest you search 5G on the internet and youtube. There are millions of articles, videos on the danger of 5G. Also you may want to search the danger of cellphones. Again your Gov’t proved 20 years ago that cellphones cause brain cancer.
    Ask Vice President Joe Biden, his son died of brain cancer caused by his cellphone verified by his doctors. These kids have no idea how bad and how fast things will change.

  34. Kurt Walker

    It’s very hard to talk to these kids when the democrats, the news media, the schools and colleges, and the UN are all telling them the sky is falling. I suppose they will have to do as I did, learn for themselves. It’s a HARD lesson though.
