Poll finds Americans fear expensive emissions limits

More than six in ten Americans believe the UN global climate change treaty negotiated in Kyoto will be expensive for Americans and should not be implemented, according to a Wirthlin Worldwide poll.

“American voters are not willing to pay higher energy costs resulting from the approval of the Kyoto Treaty,” the survey summary said. A majority of voters polled (68%) agreed that more research is needed before the U.S. limits itself, and most Americans (71%) believe the U.S. should speed up voluntary programs to reduce greenhouse gases.
