'Solid Majority' of Republicans Say US Should Tackle Warming: Survey

"Global warming isn't just an issue for Democrats, according to a report released yesterday by George Mason and Yale universities. Sixty-two percent of self-identified Republicans and GOP-leaning independents said in a national survey that the United States should or probably should take action to address climate change despite uncertainties, the report says."

"Only 52 percent of those surveyed said climate change is happening.

More than three-quarters of those surveyed said the nation should use more renewable energy -- with 69 percent saying more renewables should be used immediately. By a 2-1 margin, respondents said the nation should reduce its reliance on fossil fuels when considering the benefits."
