A recent survey found an alarming number of Americans trust Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Greta Thunberg about global warming.
They also trust Bill Nye, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Pope Francis.
But none of these people are scientists. And they’re spreading climate alarmism and mythology, not climate science.
An eye-opening survey by Yale and George Mason University found that two-thirds of Americans trust Greta Thunberg as a source of information about global warming. Even though she’s famous for skipping class to do activism instead of learning science.
More than half of Americans also trust Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for climate information. But she sounds more like a cult devotee than a scientist when she discusses climate data. At her best, she talks about the issue in the sensational terms of a “moral panic,” not with the scientific point of view.
And of course, it’s also no secret that Ocasio-Cortez and Thunberg have a policy agenda. That’s hardly the basis for an objective evaluation of the facts.
