(Sacramento, CA)
Thursday, July 28, 2011
According to the P-P-I-C poll, support for new nuclear power plants in California has dropped in the wake of the Japanese nuclear crisis.  Sixty-five percent of adults oppose building new plants, while 30 percent are in favor.  That's a 14-point drop in support since last July. 
The question of off-shore oil drilling has Californians more evenly split: 46 percent favor and 49 percent oppose.  Support for drilling is up 12 points from a year ago. 
Most Californians say global warming is a serious threat and support the state's effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 
Those surveyed also give Governor Jerry Brown a 42 percent approval rating -identical to his rating in May, despite the passage of an on-time state budget during that period.   The statewide poll of about 25-hundred adults was conducted earlier this month.
