“Is that a trick question?” That was the response of one Georgia Tech student when asked by CFACT: “Is global warming predominantly man-made or not?”
The indoctrination of global warming alarmism at even our nation’s most prestigious universities is obvious from this student’s response, who was dumbfounded that anyone would be challenging these views. The good news? The enthusiasm of the skeptics at GA Tech is even stronger.
While 13% of Georgia Tech students surveyed said that they did not believe global warming was man-made, a third of those who expressed skepticism of the entrenched climate change doctrine were enthusiastic about getting involved to challenge the radical green agenda. This is huge.
Tony Evangelista, Georgia Field Representative for the Leadership Institute, partnered with CFACT to engage with the student body. “The story here is that Georgia Tech has a strong, motivated base of those in the underground climate change movement,” Tony said. “This campus is primed for big things on the environmental debate. The greens better watch out.”
With schools focused on agriculture, science, technology, and the energy industry, the Georgia Institute of Technology is a perfect place for CFACT to reach students on free market environmentalism. On Georgia Tech’s website, it even says that the institution is “committed to improving the human condition through advanced science and technology.” Armed with these new student activists, CFACT will be able to help the campus community realize that their own slogan is the best solution to society’s environmental problems, not government regulation.
The survey was part of CFACT’s “Keep Calm Climate Changes” campaign, which aims to educate students on the issue of global warming and the importance of energy freedom. Going forward, these new CFACT activists at Georgia Tech will make strides towards educating their peers on the truth in the science, such as the fact that there has not been any global warming in 19 years.
