Lung Association Poll: Another Attempt to Influence Public Opinion in the Guise of Reporting It

“Of total respondents, 63% were in favor, 30% were opposed. So according to the ALA, the public supports tougher standards by 2 to 1. But since most respondents have probably never heard or thought about the issue until that moment, the results simply confirm what everybody already knows: Most people think air pollution is a bad thing and would prefer to have less of it.” [GlobalWarming.org]

  1. more important, most people think air quality is worse now than ever. just ask them.

    • As you say, they get told that every day. Then read the EPA’s propaganda sheets on their new regulations. The NO2 NAAQs has added thousands to getting air permits. I spent 2.5 years on a 6 MW landfill gas to electricity project and have been working for 18 months on the permit for another all due to the 1-hr NO2 NAAQS.

  2. As usual, the EPA begins with a result and works the experiment to achieve that result. The question, in all probability, quietly directed the respondent to the ‘right’ answer. Would love to get a look at the question.

  3. It was a Lung Association poll, of course it was a sham.

  4. Polls are tools for shaping public opinion, not gauges to measure it.
