While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    Are Climate Change Denial And Racism Connected?

    Isabella O’Malley, June 13, 2018 (The Weather Network)

    “…Research shows that since Barack Obama’s presidency in 2008, racial identification and attitudes have increasingly spilled over into polarizing issues with divided public opinion, such as health care, and new research… [using data from Pew and American National Election Surveys] provides evidence of a 'racial spillover effect' into the climate change discourse in the United States…Racial identification and concern about climate change strengthened while Obama was president…Aggregate opinion trends indicate that the steepest decline in public concern about climate change occurred among white Americans after 2008…Increasing levels of racial resentment are strongly associated decreased belief in climate change…[This study explains that] ‘racialization’ happens when racial identities or prejudices become increasingly related to specific policies or actions…Increased partisan sorting along racial attitudes is a phenomenon that has influenced political identity for decades…While racial attitudes and resentments do not entirely explain the trend with climate change denialism, these findings can help us understand previous and current variations in climate change beliefs.” click here for more
