A recent survey by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has found that people aren’t buying what left-wing politicians and environmental extremists are peddling.
The poll conducted by CRC Advisors asked a simple question: How much were Americans willing to pay to fight climate change.
In a nutshell, the majority of Americans (57%) are only willing to pay $10 or less a month to fight climate change.
In other words, Americans are starting to see through the extremist rhetoric and realize there is another agenda afoot. This quit being about the climate years ago and is now all politics.
The Daily Caller provided an overall summary of the findings:
- 40% said they were unwilling to pay even one dollar a month; and
- 17% said they would cough up 10 bucks or less.
Of course, some were willing to pay significant amounts:
- 17% said they would pay between $76 to $100 a month; and
- 5% said they were willing to pay between $101 to $1,000 a month (I presume most at the higher end of this group are actually not working and expect others to pay it, not themselves.)
When you see the photos of those activists gluing themselves to cars and paintings, they all seem to be in their 20s or early 30s.
So how much is this age group willing to pay for climate change?
- 25% of that age group aren’t willing to pay anything;
- 30% said they would pay between $1 to $20 a month; and
- 48% of those aged 25 to 34 would pay $10 a month.
