Infographic: American support for renewables dropping

More Americans think that a good energy policy is to drill, baby, drill the nation's way out of rising gas prices, and fewer are supporting clean energy.

GOOD has produced an infographic depicting America's desire to drill, baby, drill their way out of rising gas prices. Support for renewables fell 18 percent over the past year while there was a 35 percent increase in demand for more cheaper and abundant fossil fuels. Support for nuclear power has also ticked up slightly. One has to wonder whether the politics of Solyndra factors into clean energy's loss of widespread acceptance.
