This year a famous public survey organization, the Pew Research Center, examined the question of how people in the United States feel about alternative energy. On the surface, this may seem like a controversial topic, yet the results point to an overwhelming conclusion – Americans favor the further development of alternative forms of energy, including solar power.
What the Survey Says
Pew interviewed over 1500 people as they compiled this survey. They asked this question: “Should alternative energy or fossil fuels be the more important priority for addressing America’s energy supply.” The results showed that the vast majority of citizens favor focusing on alternative energy development versus moving to expand the use of fossil fuels. Fully 68% overall took this position towards prioritizing the development of wind and solar power in the U.S.
Even when you factor in differences in politics, the majority of respondents in both major U.S. political parties preferred seeing alternative energy as the priority. When age was considered, alternative energy still won out over fossil fuels. Naturally, young people are the most accepting of solar and wind energy development, but even those in the 65 and over age group were 50% in favor of building up our alternative energy resources over fossil fuels.
