Americans Back Curbs on Auto Emissions, Other Environmental Proposals
majority opposes drilling for oil in Alaskan wilderness
GALLUP NEWS SERVICE
PRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup's
annual Environment survey, updated Mar. 11-14, 2007, finds the overwhelming majority of
Americans supporting environmental proposals that would strengthen government
restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions and spend more taxpayer money to
develop alternative sources of fuel and energy. Americans have been widely
supportive of these proposals since Gallup
began tracking them as far back as six years ago. Public support for these
proposals dipped slightly in 2006 but bounced back this year, and grew to a
new high in the case of setting higher restrictions on auto emissions.
Gallup finds much less support for
expanding the use of nuclear energy or opening the Arctic National Wildlife
Refuge in Alaska
for oil exploration.
percentages favoring each of the eight proposals tested range from a high of
86% for spending government money to develop alternative sources of fuel for
automobiles, to a low of 41% for oil drilling in the Alaskan wilderness.
Next, I am going to read some specific environmental
proposals. For each one, please say whether you generally favor or oppose it.
