- A majority of voters are unwilling to pay more than $10 out of their own pockets monthly to mitigate climate change, according to a poll released Friday.
- It gets worse: More than 40% of respondents said that they would not pay a single dollar of their own money each month to reduce the impact of climate change, while only 17% said they would be willing to spend $10 or less.
- About 25% of young voters (ages 18-24) aren’t willing to pay anything to combat climate change and 30% would only be willing to spend an additional $1 to $20 monthly, while 48% of voters ages 25-34 would not spend more than an additional $10 per month.
- “Most Americans remain unwilling to pay for the enormous costs of climate change policies,” said Myron Ebell, director of the CEI’s Center for Energy and Environment. “The Biden administration’s anti-energy regulatory policies are already costing Americans more than $10 a month in higher gasoline and electricity prices … and these costs are just the beginning.”
