People want to do something about climate change. Period. | Lights Out San Francisco

People want to do something about climate change. Period.

Wow.

I came across this amazing study recently published by Gallup and Yale. It shows what I think we already know, which is, people are concerned about climate change and increasingly want to do something about it.

Summary:

  • 72% are either ‘Completely Convinced’ or ‘Mostly Convinced’ that “global warming is happening”.
  • 69% are convinced that Global Warming is caused either completely or partially by human activities. (57% believe that human activities are directly to blame.)
  • 67% Strongly favor “Requiring automakers to increase the fuel efficiency of cars, trucks, and SUVs to 35 miles per gallon, even if it meant a new car would cost up to $500 more to buy.” An additional 12% “somewhat favor” this step.
  • 82% either ’strongly favor’ or ’somewhat favor’ “Requiring electric utilities to produce at least 20% of their electricity from wind, solar, or other renewable energy sources, even if it cost the average household an extra $100 a year.”
