PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and the Environment

Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Sonja Petek, and Jui Shrestha

Some findings of the current survey:

  • A record-high majority say California should act now to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, rather than wait until the economy improves.
  • Although many are unaware of the state’s cap-and-trade program, most consider it important to spend some of the revenues in disadvantaged areas.
  • Slim majorities favor building the Keystone XL Pipeline, but oppose increased use of fracking.
