"Report: Voters More Likely To Back Climate-Friendly Candidate"

"Registered voters are three times more likely to vote against a candidate who opposes government action to mitigate climate change, according to a new study.

The study, conducted by Yale University, found that voters are two and a half times more likely to vote for a congressional or presidential candidate who backs action on global warming.

The Yale report states that while Democrats are "more convinced" that human-caused climate change is occurring and are more eager to back climate policies, Republicans are "deeply" divided on the subject."
