WisBusiness: Two polls reach different conclusions on state’s global warming viewpoint

Two state groups are out with polls showing conflicting views on global warming in Wisconsin

The Forest County Potawatomi poll finds 70 percent of Wisconsin voters support the state taking its own steps to control greenhouse gas emissions.

The poll also found that two-thirds of Wisconsin voters favor a requirement that utilities use renewable sources to generate 25 percent of their electricity by 2025.

But the business group Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce has its own poll that finds 62 percent of voters saying they believe global warming is not Wisconsin’s problem to solve.

That poll also found more than two-thirds percent of voters oppose increased renewable energy mandates when told of increased costs on their electric bill.
