Americans Prefer Energy Security Over Anti-Energy Development Policies

A host of new polls dramatize that the nation’s environmental activists continue to have problems gaining traction for anti-carbon strategies.

The Keystone Pipeline has majority support (74% proceed), largely reflecting American support for developing its continental energy resources, including natural gas (76% support).  It trumps concern about global warming two-to-one (63% reduce oil imports from outside North America is more important vs. 30% reduce greenhouse gases was more important).
