Donald Trump and the Triumph of Climate-Change Denial

The science of man-made global warming has only grown more conclusive. So
why have Republicans become less convinced its real over the past decade
and a half?

The science of man-made global warming has only grown more conclusive. So
why have Republicans become less convinced its real over the past decade
and a half?

.

Denial of the broad scientific consensus that human activity is the
primary cause of global warming could become a guiding principle of Donald
Trumps presidential administration. Though its difficult to pin down
exactly what Trump thinks about climate change, he has a well-established
track record of skepticism and denial. He has called global warming a
hoax, insisted while campaigning for the Republican nomination that hes
not a big believer in man-made climate change, and recently suggested that
nobody really knows if climate change exists. Trump also plans to nominate
Republicans to lead the Environmental Protection Agency and the Energy
Department who have expressed skepticism toward the scientific agreement
on human-caused global warming.

.

Indeed, Trumps election is a triumph of climate denial, and will elevate
him to the top of a Republican Party where prominent elected officials
have publicly rejected the climate consensus. Its not that the
presidential election was a referendum on global warming. Climate change
barely came up during the presidential debates, and voters rated the
environment as a far less pressing concern than issues like the economy,
terrorism, and health care. But that relative lack of concern signals that
voters have not prioritized action on climate change, if they want any
action taken at all. Trumps victory sends a message that failing to
embrace climate science still isnt disqualifying for a presidential
candidate, even as scientists warn that the devastating consequences of
global warming are under way and expected to intensify in the years ahead.

.

If Trump fails to take climate change seriously, the federal government
may do little to address the threat of a warming planet in the next four
years. A presidential administration hostile to climate science also
threatens to deepen, or at the very least prolong, the skepticism that
already exists in American political life. If the Trump administration
continues to push the false claim that global warming is a hoax, not
happening, not human caused, or not a serious problem, Id expect many
conservative Republican voters to follow their lead, said Anthony
Leiserowitz, the director of Yale Universitys Program on Climate Change
Communication.

.

The entrenchment of climate-science denial is one of the ways the United
States appears to be exceptional relative to the rest of the world. A
comparative 2015 study of nine conservative political parties in countries
such as Canada, Germany, and Spain concluded that the U.S. Republican
Party is an anomaly in denying anthropogenic climate change. Meanwhile,
Americans were least likely to agree that climate change is largely the
result of human activity in a 2014 survey of 20 countries, including
China, India, Australia, and Great Britain.

.

Scientific reality does not seem to have escaped the distorting influence
of political polarization in the United States. A paper published in
Environment earlier this year suggests that as the Tea Party pushed the
Republican Party further to the political right, it helped solidify
skepticism of man-made climate change within the GOP. That happened as the
Tea Party incorporated anti-environmentalism and climate-change denial
into its agenda, the authors write, and subsequently became part of a
broader denial countermovement made up of fossil-fuel companies as well as
conservative think tanks and media outlets.

.

As the ideological divide between Republicans and Democrats has widened,
so has the partisan divide over climate change. Scientific evidence that
human activity is the leading cause of global warming has continued to
accumulate in recent years, and the evidence for man-made climate change
is now overwhelming. In spite of that, Republicans are slightly less
convinced than they were a decade and a half ago that the Earth is getting
warmer as a result of human activity. Democrats have moved in the opposite
direction and become more likely to say that man-made climate change is
real. This year, Gallup found that while 85 percent of Democrats believe
human activity has lead to higher temperatures, only 38 percent of
Republicans agree.
