16 JULY 2013:
PEOPLE URGE GOVERNMENT TO BACK RENEWABLES
An authoritative new study from Cardiff University has revealed people's positive attitudes towards renewable energy. The study, conducted over two and a half years and involving 2,441 participants, highlighted the fact that a massive 82% of people say that they are worried about the country becoming dependent on energy from other countries. A similar figure (79%) wants to see reduction in fossil fuel use in the next few decades.
People said that they still backed renewable power even if the costs were significantly higher, and they wanted to move away from fossil fuels even if they were cheaper as they are a finite resource. The research also highlighted a massive 75% of the population were in favour of wind energy specifically.
