Love Canal Moment--Poll Shows Americans Want Energy Legislation In Wake of Deepwater Horizon Spill

About two-thirds of respondents believed that Congress needs to take action that will be "more than a Band-Aid" and to "pass real reforms to hold polluters accountable and invest in clean American energy," according to the poll, which was conducted by Benenson Strategy Group and released by the League of Conservation Voters and the Clean Energy Works campaign, a coalition that includes environmentalists, labor unions and a number of other interest groups.

Public outrage + environmental disaster = regulation.  Stay tuned.
