Most Arizonans Are Concerned About Climate Change According To Poll

More Arizonans today — nearly two-thirds in fact — are concerned about climate change and view it as a serious problem. That’s one of the main findings from the latest Conservation in the West Poll.

Every year for the last nine years, the Colorado College State of the Rockies Project has conducted this poll and, over that time, seen people in Western states shift their attitudes towards climate change, the environment and public lands.

But there has been one constant for them over that time — the importance of the natural environment.

The Show spoke about this with Dave Metz, a partner with FM3 Research, one of two firms that conducted the survey of 32,000 people in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
