Poll: Registered Vermont Voters Divided Over State's Response To Climate Change
Do you think Vermont state officials are doing too much, not enough, or about the right amount to address climate change? That's one of the questions a recent VPR - Vermont PBS poll asked Vermonters. While 39% of respondents said about right, another 39% believe Vermont is not doing enough to address climate change. And 18% said the state is doing too much.
