#California loves its new #climatechange tax

Public support for the state’s battle against global warming remains strong and growing, according to a new poll from the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California.

Seventy-two percent of California adults back last year’s law requiring the state to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. Fifty percent said climate policies would create more jobs, the highest level since the question was first asked seven years ago.

At the same time, a majority of Californians said they didn’t know anything about the state’s cap-and-trade program, which lawmakers recently voted to extend until 2030.

Both the governor and the Legislature have a 51% approval rating on environmental issues.
