THE PUBLIC'S ATTITUDES TOWARD AND KNOWLEDGE OF ENERGY-RELATED ISSUES. HIGHLIGHT REPORT. VOLUME XI
This report is part of a series of studies dealing with general public behavior and attitudes towards energy conservation. It concentrates on attitudes toward nuclear power plants, the impact of school programs on home energy consumption, factors affecting the public's use of mass transit, and company efforts at energy conservation. Some of the following questions are considered: role of the school in emphasized energy conservation; efforts of children to conserve at home; efforts of children to recycle; car pooling in relationship to long distance mass transit; availability of public transportation; interest in public transit for shopping; drawbacks to using public transportation; likelihood of using buses if special lanes were provided for them; impact of increased travel time; type of mass transit most needed; and money for mass transit vs. highways.
