Most Americans Choose Environmental Protection Over Growth
Posted March 24, 2014 at 10:16am
Gallup : “Americans are more likely to say protection of the environment should be given priority, even at the risk of curbing economic growth.”
“Among age groups, Americans aged 18 to 29 are most likely to say the environment should be given priority over economic growth, by a 60%-to-30% margin … Both 30- to 49-year-olds and 50- to 64-year-olds prioritize the environment over economic growth, but the gap between the two topics narrows as the age group becomes older.”
Bottom Line: “When Americans prioritize the environment over economic growth, it could be a sign that they perceive a healthier U.S. economy.”
