In a recent poll conducted by the Nature Conservancy it was discovered a growing number of New Yorker’s are in support of NYS REV (Reforming the Energy Vision). A total of 89% of New Yorker’s questioned were in support of the plan, only 8% were against and 3% didn’t know or didn’t answer. That is statistically significant in every text book out there. It is a clear majority of support. With the support of the voters New York State can feel confident in it’s landmark decisions made in the interest of the people and the environment. I encourage everyone to read this poll, it is full of interesting bits of voter opinion stats. Well done, Nature Conservancy!
