Do you think Vermont state officials are doing too much, not enough, or about the right amount to address climate change? That's one of the questions a recent VPR - Vermont PBS poll asked Vermonters. While 39% of respondents said about right, another 39% believe Vermont is not doing enough to address climate change. And 18% said the state is doing too much. This hour, we dive into the results and take your comments and questions.
