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.
