Majority support for biofuel subsidies - poll

Poll: Strong support for renewable energy, as long as it doesn't cost much

There is strong support for using wind farms and other sources of renewable energy in the U.S. and the largest European countries but little appetite for paying much for it, according to a new poll.

People in those countries are also divided over whether it's a good idea to rely more on nuclear power, according to the Financial Times/Harris survey.

At least three-quarters of those polled are in favor of building more wind farms in their countries — including 87 percent in the U.S. The support in Europe ranged from 90 percent in Spain to 77 percent in France.
There is also majority support — ranging from 77 percent in Italy to 60 percent in the U.S. — for using government subsidies to fund biofuels. As many as 34 percent of people in Spain and as few as 13 percent in Britain "strongly" favor the subsidies approach.

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.

Your idea?
