Global Warming Among Top Environmental Concerns for Californians

From the AP:

Californians rank global warming among their top three environmental concerns, saying it is more of a problem than water pollution and pollution in general, according to a poll released Wednesday.

The annual survey by the nonprofit Public Policy Institute of California found that adults are increasingly listing global warming as the most important environmental issue, believe global warming has already begun and say the state needs to take immediate action to deal with it.

While air pollution and energy issues remain the top two environmental concerns, voters are giving global warming more attention. And that sentiment was realized before the current heat wave that is stifling much of the state.
Of course, there is a compromise: Build new nuclear capacity to keep the lights on and reduce carbon emissions.

Do the folks in the area suffering the most, Sacramento, recall the name Rancho Seco?
