Giving Compass' Take:
• Matthew Sheffield at The Hill goes over a poll showing Democratic, Republican and Independent voters opinions on taking environmental action. While most seem to be for improving policies for our environment, the big divid comes with the question of payment.

A majority of Americans are interested in taking action to protect the environment but are divided on how to do so, suggesting a complicated path forward for winning support for a "green new deal" that would dramatically change the economy to take on climate change.
In a Hill-HarrisX survey of registered voters, 65 percent of respondents agreed that current environmental patterns are troubling and must be dealt with but they were split on whether to support costly government actions to do so.
Of those who said they found the direction of the environment troubling, 66 percent agreed with the statement that current environmental patterns are "extremely troubling" and that action must be taken now to address them.
