Small businesses are already seeing the impacts of climate change, and they’re ready to do something about it.  A poll of small business owners released Wednesday from the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) found that 87 percent are worried that climate change impacts will harm their businesses, 64 percent support some kind of government regulation on carbon pollution, and 40 percent even say they’d accept a 10 percent increase in energy prices rather than suffer the consequences of climate change.

The poll of 555 owners of businesses with between two and ninety-nine employees also found that 57 percent are concerned about carbon pollution, and 57 percent also thought big carbon emitters should make the biggest reductions and bear most of the costs of cuts.
