As Americans Tire of Eco-Panic, Hillary Quietly Drops ‘Climate Change’ Rhetoric

-

 Ever since July, Hillary Clinton has eliminated the words “climate change” from most of her public addresses, according to recent reports.

A Yale University study released in July revealed that only 17 percent of American voters describe themselves as “alarmed” about climate change, or would rank it as a top tier election issue. Republican candidate Donald Trump has successfully positioned himself as a climate-change skeptic, and Hillary seems to have registered how little the issue resonates with voters.

Climate Home, a UK-based environmental advocacy group associated with the left-wingGuardian newspaper, searched for the words “climate change” in all speech transcripts published on the Clinton campaign website between January 2016 and early September and found that she had all but abandoned reference to climate change since July.

A broader search for the word “environment” confirmed the trend to back away from climate issues, with Clinton mentioning the word in just four of her 78 official speeches in 2016.
