Survey by Associated Press, Black Youth Project. Methodology: Conducted by AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, August 31 - September 16, 2017 and based on 1,816 telephone and online interviews. Sample: National adult age 18-30. 1707 respondents were interviewed online, and 109 by telephone. The GenForward survey was built from two sample sources: 65% of the completed interviews are sourced from NORC¿s AmeriSpeak Panel. AmeriSpeak is a probability based panel that also uses address-based sample but sourced from the NORC National Frame with enhanced sample coverage. During the initial recruitment phase of the AmeriSpeak panel, randomly selected US households were sampled with a known, non-zero probability of selection and then contacted by US mail, email, telephone, and field interviewers (face-to-face). 35% of the completed interviews are sourced from the Black Youth Project (BYP) panel of young adults recruited by NORC. The BYP sample is from a probability-based household panel that uses an address-based sample from a registered voter database of the entire US. Households were selected using stratified random sampling to support over-sampling of households with African Americans, Latinxs, and Asian Americans ages 18-34. NORC contacted sampled households by US mail and by telephone, inviting them to register and participate in public opinion surveys twice a month. [USAP.103117N.R07A] (View Citation)

(Now, here is a list of some specific things recently discussed that could help to prevent an energy crisis--some involving some risk according to environmentalists, others involving no risk to the environment but requiring people to cut down on the use of energy.)...Relax pollution standards so that fuels which don't meet these standards, like coal, high sulfur oil, etc. can be used...Is this something you think we should start to do now or should not?
