New State-by-State Polling Reports Show Majority of Americans Want Climate Action

WASHINGTON, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–November 14, 2013.  New state-by-state polling reports find that the vast majority of Americans in both traditionally red and blue states accept climate science and want government action to clean up climate pollution. The state reports were released by Rep. Henry A. Waxman (CA-33) and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (RI), co-chairs of the Bicameral Task Force on Climate Change. Key findings showed that in every state surveyed, at least 75% of the population acknowledges the existence of climate disruption. The reports also showed that in every state surveyed, at least two-thirds of the population believes that the government should limit dangerous greenhouse gas emissions created by polluting industries.

Michael Brune, Sierra Club Executive Director, issued the following statement in response:

“If the devastation in the Philippines has shown us anything about the climate crisis, it’s that we can’t wait any longer for climate action from our leaders.  This new state-level polling analysis makes clear that Americans across the country understand the dangers of climate disruption and want action from their leaders now.

“The United States has a moral obligation to our children to go all in on climate solutions like clean wind and solar energy that don’t destabilize our climate. It’s time for our leaders to wake up and seize this opportunity to ensure a safer, cleaner, and more prosperous future for Americans and the planet.”
