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

July 2016

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Ten years after California enacted AB 32, strong majorities support the law’s greenhouse gas emission reduction goal and favor expanding it.
  • Most Californians say they are willing to pay more for electricity from renewable sources to help reduce global warming.
  • When asked about the most important environmental issue facing the state, more Californians name water supply and drought than any other issue.
  • Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump in the presidential race; in the US Senate matchup, Kamala Harris leads Loretta Sanchez.
