Americans Support Increased Energy Prices To Fight Hotcoldwetdry

Here’s one for the Warmists

(Bloomberg) Americans are willing to bear the costs of combating climate change, and most are more likely to support a candidate seeking to address the issue.

By an almost two-to-one margin, 62 percent to 33 percent, Americans say they would pay more for energy if it would mean a reduction in pollution from carbon emissions, according to the Bloomberg National Poll.

While Republicans were split, with 46 percent willing to pay more and 49 percent opposed to it, 82 percent of Democrats and 60 percent of independents say they’d accept higher bills.

Australians were also willing to pay more to combat “climate change”. That is, until the laws were actually passed and the rising prices and personal restrictions became reality, then they threw the ruling Labor party out on their ears.

A majority of Americans see climate change as a threat, with 46 percent classifying it as a “major” threat and 27 percent as a “minor threat.” Half would like the federal government to adopt policies to combat it in the next decade.

What’s not mentioned in the article is that only 5% see “climate change” as a the most important issue facing the nation, per the poll results.

The public also is split on the scientific underpinnings of climate change. Forty-eight percent say they “trust” warnings from scientists about the problem, while 43 percent say scientists “manipulate their findings for political reasons.”

That’s pretty damning that it’s almost an even split on trust/distrust of climate scientists.

What’s not included are the study samples. Regardless, when it’s not just Other People paying the price for “climate change” policies, but the people who say they are willing to pay more getting hit, their opinions will change in a snap. We already see that most Warmists are not willing to pay the price now.

    … compared to what? Burglars are a threat too, but I dont expect the Feds to enact new taxes in order to counter that threat.

    So says Bloomberg who also believes people should not have a 2nd amendment right. And that they have a right to tell you what you can buy and can not buy, how much of what you can drink or not.
