According to a recent poll conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, while a majority of respondents supported alternative fuels, sentiment for solar, wind and hydrogen power was not as popular as it had been in March 2011, when 63 percent indicated that was their favorite choice, while 29 percent chose coal, oil and gas exploration. The most recent poll finds that 52 percent of those responding indicated support for alternative fuel was more important than increasing oil, coal and natural gas production.
