Upcoming July 18, 2024 · 11:00 am - 11:40 am

As California grapples with wildfires and record heat, PPIC’s latest survey focuses on local, state, and national environmental issues. The survey gauges the importance of environmental issues for California voters, tracks climate change perceptions and policy preferences, and explores views on a range of ocean, coast, and marine life issues. Lauren Mora will outline key findings and discuss takeaways with Deja Thomas.
