PENNSYLVANIANS support the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's recently proposed ruling cutting carbon emissions from power plants, according to a League of Conservation Voters poll released yesterday.
The poll found that 61 percent of residents wanted the U.S. Senate to support the new EPA regulation to limit carbon pollution, while 27 percent were opposed. Six hundred residents were polled.
Representatives from the league said 42 percent of those interviewed identified as Democrat, 39 percent as Republican.
The league conducted the poll in Pennsylvania and Virginia after the Obama administration proposed an EPA rule that would reduce carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2030 from levels measured in 2005.
