Poll: Americans willing to pay for climate-change work – all the way up to $1

Democrats in Congress working on ways to tax consumers more

The majority of Americans believe that human-caused climate change is occurring but are unwilling to pay more than $1 extra to mitigate its effects, a new poll shows.

A recent poll by the Associated Press and the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago showed that 75% of Americans think that human activities cause some climate change. Of those surveyed, 55% said that they would be in favor of Congress passing legislation making the U.S. less reliant on fossil fuels.

“I would say, like 5, 10 dollars, as long as it’s really being used for what it should be,” Krystal Chivington, one of the respondents, told the AP.

Another respondent, Mark Sembach, said that corporations should bear the brunt of the costs associated with transitioning from fossil fuels to renewables, according to the AP.

“I think it needs to fall a great deal on responsible corporations that’s — and unfortunately … most corporations aren’t responsible,” Sembach told the AP. “And I think there needs to be a lot of pushback as to who ultimately pays for that.”

In recent weeks, Democrats faced increased pressure from environmental activists to pass climate provisions in their budget. However, some Democrats in Congress, including Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, pushed back on many of the most costly ideas.

Manchin shot down the $150 billion Clean Electricity Performance Program, a central part of the budget in addition to a potential carbon tax. President Joe Biden also rejected a carbon tax.

“By the way, if you notice the — you know, the way you usually pay for infrastructure bill — infrastructure is by gasoline taxes? I wouldn’t allow that because that would tax people making under $400,000,” Biden said during remarks in Scranton, Pennsylvania, on Oct. 20.

But the Democrats’ budget bill still includes a methane fee, which industry groups and elected officials argued would increase energy costs for consumers.

Additional Information, MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

Some people and groups use propaganda because it often works. Propaganda has been used for centuries, it is nothing new.

Climate change is real enough. But the question if it is caused by humans is worthwhile, because climate change occurred for thousands (millions?) of years before the first humans walked the earth. A classic example of that is shown below.

These events took place, per science, some 119,800 years before the type of ‘man made’ behavior that is claimed to cause the climate change ‘crisis.’ Former Barack Obama bought a home in Martha’s Vineyard on the Atlantic Ocean. If they actually believed that climate change was so severe and that the oceans are rising, why did they do that pricey housing purchase?
Oceans have risen and fallen throughout history. That’s what this illustration reflects. Other climate changes have occurred that had nothing to do with humanity. While a case can be made that pollution that harms the environment or people is obviously to be avoided, that’s different than trying to push everyone into electric cars that would not have enough electric generation to support. The so-called climate plans are often self-contradictory, when examined.



The fact that propaganda on climate has been deployed for decades, starting in the later part of 20th century, does not make it true.

But as important, is that Americans when polled do not favor spending a lot of money because of the climate. This is hardly the first poll of this kind. Prior ones have similar results.

Hypothetically speaking, even if climate change was man made, the U.S. is cleaner than China and India and several other nations. It is China and India that are building new coal fired plants, not the U.S. Until China and India would – through actual behavior – make it clear that they would sacrifice their economic growth at the altar of climate change, there is no reasonable purpose in the U.S. destroying its economy.

It seems clear – based upon behavior – that China and India do not believe in man made climate change, or they would be behaving differently.



The agenda behind climate is just one more cost and regulation that can be used as a cudgel against smaller businesses by bigger businesses. The evidence for that comes by following the money trail to the so-called energy conservation interests.


The facts, the law, and a rigged system are all reasons to stop this DOE energy press against manufactured housing. See the related reports to learn more.

(UT-R) has accused the Biden team of implementing policies that harm the poorest and middle class more while enriching the wealthy. Weeks before others in the mainstream media began to flash their ‘inflation warnings,’ MHProNews added first the top, then later the second notice above. When someone has even a basic understanding of the principles of economics, ‘inflation’ was predictable. The question is, will hyper-inflation follow? There are voices on both sides of that debate.
