Poll: Most Americans Aren’t Willing To Pay For Obama’s Global Warming Plans

power-lines-roadMost Americans won’t spend more than $1 a month in higher electricity bills to fight global warming, according to a new Associated Press-University of Chicago poll.

Only 57 percent of Americans would be willing to spend the extra cash to fight global warming, according to the poll, and 39 percent said they’d spend up to $10 a month to stave off warming.

The polling means that less than 40 percent of Americans are willing to pay for Obama’s Clean Power Plan. The plan, which is intended to slow global warming, is expected to cost a staggering $41 billion annually, which equates to about $10.74 a month for each American.

Of the 1,096 adults polled, 77 percent said that global warming was occurring, 13 percent weren’t sure, and only 10 percent said it wasn’t happening. The research was paid for by the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago.

The Clean Power Plan likely won’t have a large impact on global warming. The Clean Power Plan will only advert 0.019° Celsius of warming by the year 2100, an amount so small it can’t be detected, according to analysis by the libertarian Cato Institute using models created by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Other polls found that global warming is a more polarizing issue than gay marriage or abortion.

    The warmist sales pitch is …save the grandkids , help cool the planet . Fork over $$trillions and there could be a 1 degree change …. maybe . Why would anyone have a problem with that ? Well other than humans are not about to set the earth’s thermostat
    and warming is highly beneficial as evident by historical records of warmer periods .
    So what if the seas rise, China will just have to build higher islands in the South China Sea and billionaires in California will get their servants to bring the beach furniture a foot closer to the mansion every 10 or 20 years . And think of the happy fish, isn’t it about time we showed them a little respect .
    Scratch a global warming disciple and population control , bigger government ,
    wealth transfer to “have not countries ” and massive subsidies to uneconomic businesses are the common theme . All because the earth has a fever don’t you know ? The socialist agenda disguised as a concern for the planet . What utter nonsense .
