Poll: Voters Say Planet Is Heating Up, Lawmakers Should Get With The Program

April 4th, 2008 by flanews

A recent poll suggests Republicans, Democrats and Independent voters want lawmakers to ignore party lines and do something about climate change. The study was released Friday in Tallahassee. The poll suggests 70 percent of Florida Voters believe humans are causing the planet to heat up. Jerry Karnes, the Florida Director of the Environmental Defense Fund, said the poll suggests Republicans are catching up with democrats on their feelings about global warming and what should be done to save the ozone.

We believe the Republican Party is going back to its roots, which is, they are the founding fathers of Americas conservation movement. Theyre getting back to their trajectory and getting back to their history, Karnes said.

About 80 percent of voter polled said they would cast ballots for a candidate that believes that climate change is a scientific fact.
