Majority Willing to Pay to Curb Climate Change

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.”  

“‘It is a rare poll where people responding will stand up and say ‘tax me,’ said J. Ann Selzer, founder of Des Moines , Iowa-based Selzer & Co., which conducted the poll.  

“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.”
