PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and the Environment, July 2007
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Jennifer Paluch, and Sonja Petek

July 2007

Some findings of the current survey:

  • For the first time, a majority of Californians (54%) say they think global warming poses a very serious threat to the state’s future economy and quality of life.
  • A majority of the state’s likely voters (54%) say that presidential candidates’ positions on the environment will be very important in determining how they cast their vote in 2008.
  • Significantly more San Joaquin Valley residents (35%) than residents statewide (25%) identify air pollution as a very serious health threat to them and their families.

This is the 79th PPIC Statewide Survey and the seventh survey on the environment since 2000. This survey is part of a three-year series conducted with funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. The intent of the series is to inform state, local, and federal policymakers, encourage discussion, and raise public awareness about environment, education, and population issues.
