Do Americans consider the environment and clean energy when they vote for politicians? Conventional thinking says even environmentalists cast ballots based on the economy and delivery of government services that directly affect their lives. That explains why some politicians privately acknowledge concern about the changing climate but don’t utter the word in public. There’s little political advantage in doing so. What numbers are Republicans and Democrats considering? How does campaign funding fit into the equation? This discussion with three experts on energy and public opinion will look at the public attitudes underneath the debate about America’s energy future.
