    NEW ENERGY WINS ANOTHER POLL

    Green energy: California poll finds overwhelming support
    July 27, 2011 (LA Times)

    "A new statewide survey of environment issues…found more [California] residents favor climate change policy, want to cut greenhouse gas emissions and believe they are already experiencing the effects of global warming…

    "The survey, the 11th since 2000…found Californians are strongly supportive of policies that encourage fuel efficiency and renewable energy…Most survey takers (67%) support the state’s law reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Across the board, state residents agree that automakers should be required to improve fuel efficiency standards (90% Democrats, 81% independents, and 76% Republicans)."


    (from the poll - click to enlarge)

    "They also overwhelmingly favor (79%) government regulation of the release of greenhouse gases from sources such as power plants, cars and factories to reduce global warming. While 79% favor greenhouse gas regulations, they are split between a cap and trade system (54% in favor) and a carbon tax (60% in favor)…

    "Sixty-six percent of Californians consider air pollution 'a big problem' but are divided when asked whether pollution is a more serious health threat in lower-income areas than in other areas in their region (50% yes, 45% no)…[B]lacks (36%) and Latinos (26%) are more likely than whites (14%) or Asians (11%) to see regional air pollution as a very serious health threat…75% view global warming as a threat to the economy and 61% believe the effects of global warming have already begun. This is an increase of 7 points since last July (54%). The percentage of Republicans who believe the effects of global warming are starting to show went up by 10 points…"
