National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters

Conducted October 10-11, 2017
By Rasmussen Reports


1* The Environmental Protection Agency is rolling back a regulation that requires a big drop in carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 2030. Supporters say the regulation will help fight global warming. Opponents say it will force facilities that generate energy from coal and nuclear power to close. Do you favor or oppose an EPA regulation that requires a one-third drop in carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 2030?


2* Will a regulation to limit carbon dioxide emissions increase energy costs in the United States, decrease energy costs or have no impact on energy costs in the United States?


3* Will the plan to reduce carbon dioxide emissions do a lot or a little to fight global warming? Or will it have no impact?
