Blog #6

  1. This article from the Kansas City Star explores the new “Clean Power Plan” introduced in Missouri., and polled residents of the state to get a feel for whether they supported this bill to lower the states’ carbon footprint. The results show that over half, 62%, do support this bill.
  2. Because the article doesn’t state how the data was collected, it makes one wonder how they ‘randomly’ collected a sample that is supposed to reflect the attitudes of the entire state.
  3. As stated, I wonder how accurately that sample reflects the state’s actual opinion on the bill, or if the KC Star was lazy with their sampling and simply asked people close to them. Because this bill has the potential to heavily change Missouri’s coal industry (which it relies heavily on), it is receiving a lot of backlash.
