The latest public attitude tracker released by the UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Changed showed that 75% of the population support the use of renewables. Only 4% oppose them.

This appears to be a pattern, from the continent whose population is most exposed to wind and solar energy. European polls consistently support renewables.
