Renewable energy sources are more popular with the public than shale extraction (i.e. fracking), according to the latest polling from YouGov.

78 per cent of people believe the government should spend more money encouraging solar power, compared to just 40 per cent who think more should be spent encouraging shale.

This compares with 65 per cent who think more should be spent encouraging wind power, 78 per cent who believe more should be spent on solar power, and 76 per cent who believe more should be spent on tidal power. Just over half (57 per cent) believe the government is right to spend money encouraging so-called clean coal.

Interesting, while 41 per cent of people support fracking, just 25 per cent support it where they live.
