Poll finds chemical spill a 'wakeup call'

from Sunday Gazette-Mail

West Virginians view the January chemical spill on the Elk River as a "wake-up call" that the state needs a different approach to environmental protection, according to a new public opinion poll conducted for the Sierra Club. Seventy-three percent of voters polled agreed West Virginia has paid too little attention to addressing threats to air and water, and that the Elk River spill should change that, according to the survey. Voters of all ages, education levels, incomes and political persuasions agreed, with particularly high agreement — 82 percent — among seniors.
