Californians Totally Support Other People Paying For Climate Crisis (scam)

There are two big takeaways from this article. First, that environmentalism, real environmental concerns about pollution, is being confused with the climate scam. Second, that Warmists in California want other people to bear the penalty for their beliefs, just not themselves

Poll: Californians support state policies to tackle climate change

Californians across the state are concerned about climate change and support plans to reduce harmful emissions and focus on renewable sources of energy. But there are stark differences when it comes to which residents of the Golden State see pollution as a serious threat to their family’s health.

According to a new survey by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC), Latinos and African Americans are more likely than whites and Asian Americans to be worried about air and water pollution in their neighborhoods.

Of those surveyed, 33% of Latinos think air pollution is a serious health threat and 24% view water pollution the same way, while 29% of African Americans see air pollution as a major health threat and 20% think polluted drinking water poses a serious health threat. For Asian Americans, 17% think air pollution is a big problem and 19% view drinking water the same way. Among white residents surveyed, just 12% are seriously worried about air pollution hurting their health and a meager 8% are concerned about polluted drinking water.

And all that is about the environment, not the climate. Linking the two makes it harder to deal with the former.

The disparity stands out amid a host of other survey questions where Californians are broadly in agreement about the need to address climate change, with 77% supporting the state law that requires greenhouse gas emissions to be scaled back to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. The same percentage of respondents approve a state policy that requires all of California’s electricity to come from renewable sources by 2045.

Now, the Mercury News article forgot to link to the poll, it’s here. On the question “Willingness to make major lifestyle changes to address global warming”, page 5, those who said yes (it’s nice that Democrats put everyone in a box, eh?)

  • African Americans 74%
  • Asian Americans 70%
  • Latinos 89%
  • Whites 62%

But, this is all theoretical, because even in uber-Leftist California ““In order to help reduce global warming, would you be willing or not willing to pay more for electricity if it were generated by renewable source like solar or wind energy?” Willing

  • African Americans 46%
  • Asian Americans 54%
  • Latinos 52%
  • Whites 42%
  • All adults 47%
  • Likely voters 50%

That’s the best you can get in California. And we all know that the minute people start seeing higher prices for energy, which leads to a higher cost of everything, they’ll scream bloody murder. I think they should give it a try, see what happens in this experimental group.

    WRONG! NOT EVEN CLOSE!

    20 years ago most folk near me lit their homes for Christmas. Last year 15 out of 17 NO LIGHTS! 20 years ago it cost $9.00 for 1,000 kWh. in ’19 it cost @220.00 for 1,000 kWh! That is a 2 thousand four hundred percent increase on 19 years! 2,444% increase.

    Some of us whine a little. No one has screamed! We all no longer have Christmas light (almost all).

    Why ask if we are willing to pay more for so-called “renewable energy”? Aren’t they constantly telling us how much cheaper it is?
