A disturbing new report has emerged revealing that an overwhelming number of so-called “American elites” support the tyrannical “climate” policies of the World Economic Forum (WEF).
According to a report from the Committee to Unleash Prosperity (CUP), America’s wealthiest citizens fully support the WEF’s plan to ration gas, electricity, and meat and dairy products for the general public in order to allegedly “fight climate change.”
The report includes polling data regarding support for policies designed to force compliance with the WEF’s “Net Zero” agenda.
Astonishingly, the polling shows that almost 90 percent of “American elites” believe strict rationing of gas, meat, and electricity is necessary to combat the so-called “climate crisis.”
The CUP report shows that 77 percent of higher-income Americans overall support these plans.
However, 89 percent of those wealthy individuals from “top universities” believe in restrictions on the public’s quality of life to meet “Net Zero.”
In fact, nearly 60 percent of such people believe there’s too much liberty in America even though, objectively speaking, we’re less free than ever.
Moreover, in another example of the pseudo-elite vs. street divide, 63 percent of Americans in general oppose the above rationing policy.
Reporting on the story, The College Fix writes that the “Committee to Unleash Prosperity [CUP], in a survey that sought to measure the beliefs of ‘elites,’ stated the findings reveal climate change ‘is clearly an obsession of the very rich and highly educated.’”
The poll, released this month and titled “Them vs. U.S.: The two Americas and how the nation’s elite is out of touch with average Americans,” was billed by the committee as a “first-of-its-kind look at the views of the American Elite.”
They are defined as “people having at least one post-graduate degree, earning at least $150,000 annually, and living in high-population density areas (more than 10,000 people per square mile in their zip code).”
The report is based on two surveys of 1,000 elites conducted last fall.
“The study also examined a sub-sample of elites, adults who attended Ivy League schools or other elite private schools, including Northwestern, Duke, Stanford, and the University of Chicago” according to CUP.
“Roughly half of those we classify as ‘elites’ attended one of these schools.
“For the purpose of this study, we label those who attended one of these schools as ‘Ivy League Graduates.’”
The “shocking” findings reveal “a wealthy, partisan elite class that’s not only immune from and numb to the problems of their countrymen but enormously confident in and willing to impose unpopular policies on them,” argued Isaac Schorr in an op-ed Friday for the New York Post.
“It’s near impossible to behold the results and not acknowledge they’re indicative of a fundamental disconnect between two Americas,” he wrote.
“That disconnect should be of as much concern to proud aristocrats as it is to the peasantry.”
As Slay News recently reported, the Democrat-controlled City of Chicago is now moving to ban natural gas from all new homes in an effort to comply with the “Net Zero” goals of the unelected WEF.
The Chicago City Council is considering an ordinance that would outlaw the use of natural gas in most new buildings.
City Council officials claim the plan is vital in meeting the WEF’s “Net Zero” agenda to “save the planet” from the so-called “climate crisis.”
Meanwhile, Democrats at the federal, state, and local levels have floated or pursued bans on gas stoves.
A proposed rule from Democrat President Joe Biden’s Department of Energy (DOE) would ban the sale of half of all gas stoves on the market, the department projected in February 2023.
Months later, the New York State legislature passed a bill that would require new buildings seven stories tall or shorter to use induction ranges and electric heat pumps.
Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul likened the transition from natural gas to the transition away from coal.
Elsewhere, some leftist lawmakers are pushing severe penalties to force the public into complying with “Net Zero.”
Democrats in Washington state are pushing for members of the public to be jailed for up to one year if they are caught using gas-powered gardening tools, as Slay News reported.
According to State Reps. Amy Walen and Liz Berry, jailing law-abiding citizens over their lawn mower’s power source will help to fight “climate change.”
Last month, the Democrat lawmakers introduced House Bill 1868.
The legislation seeks to meet “Net Zero” by the year 2030 by “reducing emissions from outdoor power equipment.”
Further, Democrat mayors across the country have been pushing measures to ban the public from consuming meat and dairy products as part of a national effort to comply with the WEF’s globalist agenda.
As Slay News reported, 14 major American cities have set a “target” to comply with the WEF’s green agenda goals by banning meat, dairy, and private car ownership by 2030.
The U.S. cities have formed a coalition called the “C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group” (C40) which has established an “ambitious target” to meet the WEF’s goals by the year 2030.
To fulfill the “target,” the C40 Cities have pledged that their residents will comply with the following list of mandatory rules:
- “0 kg [of] meat consumption”
- “0 kg [of] dairy consumption”
- “3 new clothing items per person per year”
- “0 private vehicles” owned
- “1 short-haul return flight (less than 1500 km) every 3 years per person”
Essentially, the masses must stop eating meat and using natural fuels to meet the goals of the elite.
