A new survey of Californians  says residents want the state to lead the world in fighting climate change—and many are ready to tackle the problem on the road, at the ballot box, and even with their pocketbooks. 

The findings from the Public Policy Institute of California show that the majority of Californians believe global warming is happening now and that it’s a serious threat to the Golden State’s future

What’s more, Californians are ready to cast their votes and spend their money to fight it.

The Institute found 78 percent of Californians think it is somewhat to very important to them for California to lead the charge to fight climate change. 

But like everything in America these days … there is a partisan split.

69 percent of Democrats say it was very important … compared to 46 percent of Independents and 24 percent of Republicans. 

The survey was done by the Public Policy Institute of California …. a non-partisan think tank that’s asked Californians for their take on environmental issues for nearly two decades,

The survey suggests recent catastrophic wildfires might have played a role in shaping public opinion. 

63 percent—of Californians understand that global warming has played a part in the wildfires tearing through the state. More—71 percent—are very worried about a future of more severe wildfires as a consequence of climate change. 

Californians think the state’s future is at risk, with 79 percent calling climate change a somewhat or very serious threat to the state’s future economy and quality of life.
