Good News For Warmists: Americans Are Willing To Pay $1 A Month More To Solve ‘Climate Change’

That’s about as good as it gets, though (you can see the poll overhead here. There are many links, the one with topline results has the full metrics)

(Newsmax-AP) Most Americans are willing to pay a little more each month to fight global warming — but only a tiny bit, according to a new poll. Still, environmental policy experts hail that as a hopeful sign.

Seventy-one percent want the federal government to do something about global warming, including 6 percent who think the government should act even though they are not sure that climate change is happening, according to a poll conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago.

And those polled said they’d be willing to foot a little of that cost in higher electric bills.

If the cost of fighting climate change is only an additional $1 a month, 57 percent of Americans said they would support that. But as that fee goes up, support for it plummets. At $10 a month, 39 percent were in favor and 61 percent opposed. At $20 a month, the public is more than 2-to-1 against it. And only 1-in-5 would support $50 a month.

Huh. These numbers are arrived at with a Republican/Democrat/Independent survey which breaks down to 22/35/24 sampling, with 19% saying “none of these.” So, vastly oversamples Democrats, and still we get that number.

Of those polled, 77 percent said climate change is happening, 13 percent weren’t sure, and only 10 percent said it wasn’t happening.

The problem here is that the question doesn’t delineate between natural climate change and a position where humans are mostly/solely responsible. If you ask me, yes, we are seeing climatic changes, but, doesn’t mean I think mankind is mostly/solely responsible.

Anyhow, the majority who are willing to pay more than a $1 a month are Democrats, so, have at it, folks! Practice what you preach.

    Another leaked EMAIL Damning the DNC and Hillary:

    An influential reporter at Politico made an apparent “agreement” with the Democratic National Committee to let it review a story about Hillary Clinton’s fundraising machine before it was submitted to his editors, leaked emails published by WikiLeaks on Friday revealed.

    Reporter Kenneth Vogel sent an advanced copy of his story to DNC national press secretary Mark Paustenbach in late April.

    The email’s subject line read: “per agreement … any thoughts appreciated.”

    Ever wonder why Obama’s EX Doctor is now saying he thinks Hillary is Sick and needs a full work up?

    Could it be a pushback where Hillary is claimed by a Democratic billionaire in leaked emails to HATE BARAK OBAMA?

    LOLOL….you really cant make this stuff up.

    The DNC RIGS the election against Bernie….then Hillarys hates Obama and Now shes sick and in the end the Left doesnt know who to support……..

    Just vote for trump Lefties….you know he is really a closet Democrat and will most likely have moderate judges nominated to the supreme court.

    In 2013, the average monthly electric bill in the United States was $110.21. If the survey is accurate, people would be willing to pay slightly less than 1% more for sparktricity, but not slightly less than 10% more.

    But your electricity is only part of the story: were Jeffrey to get his way, fuel costs would rise enormously, and all of that would not only hit people directly, at the fuel pump, but indirectly in price increases on virtually everything they buy, as those increased fuel and electricity bills for truckers and corporations would get passed right along.

    It would seem that, regardless of how little or how much people say they are worried about global warming climate change, they are very much unwilling to put their money where their mouths are.
