Virginia wants more action on climate change. Here’s where residents stand on policies.

This article discusses how some Virginia residents want more action on climate change.

Throughout Virginia, most residents are worried about climate change, fear that it will harm people in the U.S. within a decade and want the government to do more to tackle the problem.

And data from the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication — in partnership with the University of California, Santa Barbara and Utah State University — shows which climate policies residents disagree on, dislike and support.

There is a significant difference “between what the public wants and what we’re seeing in the General Assembly,” said Ivy Main, renewable energy chair for the Virginia chapter for the Sierra Club.
