Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: Saturday will be the milder of the two days. Sun and clouds will be the rule with early weekend highs in the mid 80s. Back to the low to mid 90s on Sunday!
WASHINGTON (March 28, 2013)--A new national survey says 82 percent of Americans want to prepare now for rising seas and stronger storms from climate change, but most are unwilling to spend the money to protect beaches.
The poll by Stanford University found that only 1 in 3 people favored the government spending millions to construct big sea walls, replenish beaches or pay people to leave coastal areas.
The options the majority preferred were making sure new buildings were stronger and reducing future coastal development.
Three in 5 people want those who are directly affected by rising seas to pay for protection, not the entire American public.
Survey director Jon Krosnick said Americans seem fatalistic about global warming.
