A new poll shows a large majority of people in Arizona are concerned about climate change and believe the government needs to do more to address it.
The survey found that 71% either “agree” or “strongly agree” with the statement that the federal government “needs to do more to combat climate change.” Similarly, 70% of those questioned said the state government needs to do more to fight climate change.
The poll also revealed that most voters don’t believe Arizona has sufficient water to meet all of its needs for the next 50 years.
The phone survey of 800 registered voters was commissioned by the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust. Researchers at Arizona State University’s Morrison Institute for Public Policy designed the questionnaire and analyzed the results.
