Should the US use more solar, wind or geothermal energy? 77% of Republicans who answered that question said ‘Yes.’
Should the US take action to use less fossil fuel? 64% of Republicans in a poll said ‘Yes.’
In a recent poll by the Center for Climate Change Communication, Republican adults, expressed support for pursuit of a greener path.
Republican politicians have disdained hearings about climate science, voted against environmental protection for our vital resources, and scorned the economic potential of green technology.
Nevertheless, their constituents see the advantages of clean energy, in particular: reducing dependence on foreign oil, preserving resources for our children, improving our health, 4protecting the creation, creating jobs and a stronger climate, saving species, limiting climate change and improving national security.
What they want to avoid is more government regulation, higher energy prices, fewer jobs, or interference with the free market. Sounds like something we can work with.
