PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and the Environment
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, David Kordus, and Lunna Lopes

July 2015

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Californians see global warming as a serious threat—and most do not think action to reduce global warming will lead to fewer jobs.
  • There is strong support for the greenhouse gas emission reduction requirements in AB 32 and SB 32.
  • Californians favor the energy goals in SB 350; they also favor state support for solar power and electric vehicles.
  • Many say water is the state’s top environmental issue—but most do not know their local water district reduction targets.
