Gallup Ghosts, or U-S Pollsters Gone Bonkers!

507 “US Adults” Said More Energy, F**k the Environment: Gallup Poll

Gallup says in a poll of “1,014 US adults” conducted a few weeks before President Obama declared it was free offshore oil drilling season, half of those surveyed (507 pollsters) in  March 4-7 said the U.S. should give more priority to developing and producing its oil and gas reserves. Only 43 percent (436 respondents) said protection of the environment was more important than having limited energy supplies.

To make it stick, Gallup says it has been asking the same question concerning the priority of energy production over environmental protection for 10 years, and this was the first time the majority voted that way.

“The poll was released a few weeks before Senators John Kerry, a Democrat, Lindsey Graham, a Republican and Joe Lieberman, an independent, hope to unveil a compromise climate bill that would effectively put fees on fuels such as gasoline and coal to reduce emissions of gases blamed for warming the planet. The bill would also seek to increase incentives for offshore drilling and nuclear power.” Reuters reported.

The Magic of Gallup Polls: U.S. Support for Nuclear Power Climbs to New High of 62%

Another Gallup poll, which Fire-Earth wrote about earlier, and which was completely blocked by Google, said the U.S. Support for Nuclear Power had Climbed to New High of 62%. That Gallup Poll coincided with Bill Gates negotiations with Japan’s Toshiba about a potential partnership into nuclear-power start-ups using the so-called traveling-wave reactor.

“We need energy miracles,” Gates said, as his start-up nuclear company TerraPower, and Japan’s transistor-radios-come-washing-machines-maker Toshiba enter a new phase of negotiation on the so-called traveling-wave reactor.

Gallup Polls Work Miracle

Early Spring Quotes

Formation of Matter, Evolution of Homo Erectus, Alberta Tar Sands, Bill Gates and Yucca as nuclear waste dump

The Evolutionary Necessity of Homo Ignoramus x2

Homo Erectus

Formation of matter would not have occurred without antimatter as a byproduct; homo erectus could not have evolved as homo sapiens sapiens without homo ignoramus ignoramus (hi2) also branching off!—Ian H. a contributor

Yucca Mountain as a Nuclear Super Hazard

“It is critical here that the DOE follow the will of Congress …  Taxpayers have already spent more than $10 billion on Yucca Mountain, compiling 20 years of data that inform us that this is the best choice to securely store tons of nuclear waste.  Keeping waste scattered across the country, or in the case of Washington State at Hanford, is no longer an option.  We have a solution to this problem and we must move forward.”  —Rep. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.)

“I will do all I can to make sure some funding goes to defend the Yucca Mountain license application this year,” Rep. John Spratt (D-SC), chairman of the House Budget Committee.

“There are fortunately dozens of companies [producing energy, but] we need it to be hundreds… It’s best if multiple [companies] succeed because then you can use a mix.” —Bill Gates, the great software monopolist calling for diversity and competition in the energy industry.

“We need energy miracles,” Gates said, as his start-up nuclear company TerraPower, and Japan’s transistor-radios-come-washing-machines-maker Toshiba enter a new phase of negotiation on the so-called traveling-wave reactor.

The Magic of Gallup Polls: U.S. Support for Nuclear Power Climbs to New High of 62%

– Says who?
– “Says Gallup, of course.”
– And how many people did they GALLUP?
– “Results are based on telephone interviews with a random sample of 1,014 national adults, aged 18 and older, conducted March 4-7, 2010. For results based on the total sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points.” Gallup said.
– What if their random method was corrupted without GALLUP knowing? Let’s face if they can fix the result of Presidential elections …

GALLUP  Bottom Line

“Last year, Gallup documented a significant increase in support for nuclear power, and that upward trend has continued this year. Although President Obama has announced his support for increased use of nuclear power, Republicans remain significantly more supportive than Democrats.” GALLUP said.

FIRE-EARTH Bottom Line: Gallup polls work miracle. Don’t start up a nuclear business without them!

Albert Tar Sands and a Deranged Minister

“I’m not talking specifically the U.S., I’m talking internationally. The environmental agenda is being driven for reasons that are greater than just global warming,” Liepert said at the Reuters Canadian Oil Sands Summit in Calgary.

The “vast, vast majority” of Americans don’t give a damn where their oil comes from, he said.

“And why should they? As long as the factories are running and cars can fuel up, why would they be all that interested or concerned?”

“My observation is that it starts in California and seeps eastward. If several states start to take action, you’re going to have many of the other states follow suit. In many ways, I think the state barriers are more of a threat than a national barrier.”

“My view is a moratorium is the first step toward getting things shut down,” he said, adding that he considers each year of a moratorium as one year of “zero production.”
