Blacks & Latinos Care More About Clean Air, Climate Change

Fox News Latino reports on a Public Policy Institute of California poll that shows both clean air and climate change rank higher as a concern for Latinos and blacks than fowhites and Asians.

According to a statewide survey published Wednesday by the Public Policy Institute of California, blacks (42 percent) and Hispanics (41 percent) were more likely than Asians (28 percent) and non-Hispanic whites (19 percent) to cite regional air pollution as a big problem.

"More than 60 percent of blacks and Hispanics said that global warming represents a very serious threat to California, compared with fewer than 40 percent of Asians and whites."

The PIC Statewide Survey: Californians and the Environment also reported that "less than a third of Californians favor building more nuclear plants, a sharp drop from last year and that support has increased for allowing more oil drilling off the California coast."
