A GOP generation gap on climate change

A wide-ranging new Pew Research Center poll shows large age-related divides in Republicans' views on global warming. Nearly half of Republicans (or who "lean" Republican) age 18-29 say the federal government is doing too little on the topic. But this concern drops off pretty sharply with age: 47% of those aged 18-49 agreed with that statement, but just 18% of Republicans aged 65+ agreed. There is also a similar sizeable gap between younger and older Republican voters on views on government climate policies (eg, carbon tax, incentivize electric vehicles, require power companies to generate more renewable electricity).
