  • Which Climate Change Policies do Americans Support?: E & E TV reports on a study conducted by New Scientist magazine, Stanford University, and Resources for the Future that takes a look at which climate policies Americans will likely support when costs are taken into account. The New Scientist study finds that Americans are willing to accept some increases in energy costs in order to address global warming, and also indicates that Americans are generally skeptical of market-based mechanisms, such as cap-and-trade systems, as compared to traditional command-and-control regulatory approaches.
