Apocalypse soon?

Gazette staff August 29th, 2012

We at CFN have always figured that one reason Sen. Jim Inhofe enjoys such strong voter support is that a hefty chunk of the electorate shares his views that manmade climate change is rubbish, rubbish and more rubbish.

But an Oklahoma Poll cited by the Tulsa World last week indicates that constituent group perhaps isn’t as large as we had thought. Two-thirds of respondents indicated they believe human activity might be partly responsible for climate change. A third of those surveyed have had their opinions changed by the record heat over the last 18 months.

If Inhofe remains popular, the World story might provide a window into why. As one Muldrow woman reportedly told the pollsters, “I really think the end times are here.”

Maybe Inhofe’s popularity isn’t so much a referendum on climate change as it is about how many Oklahomans are eager to jump-start the Second Coming.
