About the Program
How concerned are Californians about climate change and its effects? What do they think about state efforts to mitigate global warming, regulate greenhouse emissions, and address water needs? PPIC researcher Sonja Petek will outline the findings of PPIC’s annual survey on Californians and the environment, and a panel of experts will discuss the state’s environmental challenges.
This research was supported with funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The Dirk and Charlene Kabcenell Foundation.
