Skewed poll: NYT doesn’t ask if people will pay to fight global warming — they won’t

-

it doesn’t ask the obvious follow-up question: Would you pay for that action?

We have proof that the public’s answer is “No.”

Rasmussen Reports last fall asked both questions, including this one:

“To generate cleaner energy and fight global warming, it might cost Americans more money each year in taxes and utility costs. How much are you willing to pay each year in higher taxes and utility costs?”

• Nothing

• $100

• $300

• $500

• $1,000

• More than $1,000

• Not sure

Guess what? Some 48 percent of voters chose “nothing.” Another 23 percent were only willing to spend $100 more a year.
