    QUICK NEWS, November 26: Most People Now See The Climate Crisis, Want Action; Survey Shows Over 90% Favor For Solar, 85% Favor For Wind

    Most People Now See The Climate Crisis, Want Action Most Americans now see signs of climate change where they live; A majority of people surveyed said the U.S. government isn’t doing enough to counter the trend

    Gloria Dickey, November 25, 2019 (Science News)

    “…[M]ost Americans say the effects of climate change are already upon us — and that the U.S. government isn’t doing enough to stop it, according to a new public opinion survey…[A nationwide poll showed] 62 percent of U.S. adults said climate change is affecting their local community to some extent or a great deal, bringing more flooding and unusually warm weather, altering ecosystems, driving wildfires or exacerbating drought…

No other energy or climate action polled as highly, with expanded wind being second at 85%, and reduced food waste at 80%...[T]he nation’s largest CO2 free electricity source, nuclear power, followed with a split at 49%.

    ...Both [wind and nuclear] have increased their public opinion since a May poll earlier this year – with wind up 2% and nuclear up 6%...When asked separately, in a randomized manner, what one action ought we do to address American’s energy supply – developer alternatives or expand fossils – 77% of people said the former, 22% supported the latter…[suggesting that a subset of that 22% who are strongly for expanding wind and solar are not necessarily for handing the keys over…” click here for more
