U.S. support for renewable energy – including wind and solar power – has fallen substantially compared to a year ago, according to a recent poll conducted by Pew Research.

According to the poll, just 52% of Americans support developing ‘alternative’ sources of energy, such as wind, solar and hydrogen, compared to 63% in March of last year.

Overall, the poll found Americans say diversified energy policies are important, with 78% of respondents supporting better fuel efficiency standards and more than 60% supporting more funding for alternative energy research, allowing more drilling in U.S. waters and spending more on mass transit.
