A newly released poll from Rasmussen has indicated that an assertion made by recently declared Republican Presidential candidate Vivek Ramasamy regarding climate change appears to reflect the opinion of many Americans. Ramasamy reportedly stated that the doctrines of climate change represent more of a “religion” that isn’t really about the climate at all.

Ramaswamy tweeted, a video of his breakdown of the climate change faith on LindellTV in February with the caption, “Here’s the dirty little secret about the new climate religion: it has nothing to do with the climate. I can prove that to you.”

Ramaswamy explained,

“Let’s talk about the broader issue of the climate religion. Here’s the thing: Really wake up to this. It has nothing to do with the climate. Okay? If it did, the people who are calling for the U.S. to stop production here should be really concerned if PetroChina’s picking up those projects. 

Because you know what? Methane leakage, which even if you subscribe to this religion is eighty times worse for global warming than is even a unit of carbon dioxide. They don’t talk about that, they just talk about carbon emissions. Methane leakage is worse in China than it is here.

So if you really cared about supposedly even the core tenet of your religion, your god: the climate, you would have cared about shifting that production to places like China because the projects are still proceeding, but they don’t. So that’s clue number one.

Here’s clue number two. If you really cared that much about so-called carbon emissions, you would be a proponent of nuclear energy. And yet, this ESG movement, Vanguard’s ESG funds for example, exclude nuclear energy companies from their ESG funds. The ESG movement is hostile to nuclear energy. What’s going on there? That’s the second clue. Okay? The problem with nuclear energy for this movement is not that it is too bad, but that it might be too good at solving their own, in my opinion, mostly made-up problem.”

According to Rasmussen, a new national telephone report and online survey found,

“60% of Likely U.S. voters agree – including 47% who Strongly Agree – with Vivek Ramasamy’s recent statement that climate change has become a religion that ‘actually has nothing to do with the climate’ and is really about power and control.”

In addition, the report found thirty-five percent (35 percent) disagree with Ramaswamy, and of those 25 percent strongly disagree. The poll was conducted from March 6-8 on 950 likely U.S. voters with a margin of error of +/- 3%.

Although he straw-polled at CPAC tied for fourth place with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Ramaswamy seems to have an accurate read on the American people when it comes to so-called ‘climate change.’
