    Poll: Water is High Priority For Bipartisan Majority of Americans

    News | American Clean Energy Agenda (ACEA)
    Public Has Major Concerns About Expanded Shale Gas Fracking for Exporting to Other Nations;
    “Clean Water First” is Clear Choice When Public Weighs Options for More U.S. Energy Production


    1.7 million Americans are saying today that it is critically important that the next President embrace a truly clean energy revolution for electric power generation.

    (read full poll at above link)

    excerpts:

    94 percent of Americans – including 92 percent of Republicans, 87 percent of Independents, and 98 percent of Democrats – want political leadership on balancing calls for more energy production in U.S. with protecting clean water and air.

    86 percent of Americans want leadership on shifting from coal and nuclear energy to wind and solar. Support for this approach exists across party lines, including 72 percent of Republicans, 83 percent of Independents, and 97 percent of Democrats.

    88 percent of Americans want leadership when it comes to exercising caution on exporting energy – such as natural gas – that could boost China and other economies, but hurt U.S. consumers by raising energy and manufacturing costs at home. Nearly identical support levels were seen here along partisan lines: 88 percent of Republicans, 86 percent of Independents, 87 percent of Democrats.

    86 percent of Americans want leadership on addressing climate change and extreme weather. Relatively little partisan difference is seen on this point, with support for action coming from 75 percent of Republicans, 82 percent of Independents, and 95 percent of Democrats.

    86 percent of Americans want leadership on standing up to pressure from coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear power lobbyists.

    74 percent think a grassroots movement will be needed “to counter the influence of energy industry lobbyists and campaign contributions on politicians in Washington, D.C.”

    But PC knows it is all a commie plot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, the majority of Americans are waking up to the fact that we cannot keep going down the present road without some unpleasant results. And that there are viable alternatives out there. But those Americans must expend some effort to let the leaders of both parties know that their job depends on actions that reflect present reality, in spite of the energy corps lobbying, or someone else will have their job.

    100% of enviro whacks don't know their ass from a hole in the ground. :D

    Seriously, individual states' departments of natural resources have in place adequate measures for protecting and preserving groundwaters.

    "Waterless" hydraulic fracturing is being developed and used and could become widespread practice.

    It's an issue of containment, not contaminant.

    What are the effects of agriculture on clean water?

    What is the cost to the quality and quantity of water in the name of agricultural exports?

    You are picking shit off flies going after fracturing. It's becoming a cottage industry in itself, all because of carbon hysteria. Petrophobes on the march!

    Looks to me like you mean "petrophiles," who would rather die in your own wastes instead of advancing into the twenty-first century.

    Hydrocarbons propelled mankind into the modern era and have allowed us to live longer and fuller lives.

    You'd rather we ride bicycles? That would make you a pedo-file. :D

    Intellectuals think it is gay to drive cars. They prefer bicycles....a more sophisticated mode of transport.
