According to a recent poll conducted by the NRDC, climate change ranks second only to immigration reform among Latinos surveyed about major issues facing our country. A whopping 80 percent favored presidential action to fight climate change … showing a frustration with the lack of Congressional action on climate and energy policy. Interestingly, the poll results cut across all Latino demographics (although Latinos who identified as Republican were slightly less in favor of government intervention). These results provide evidence of stronger support for government action on climate change in the Latino community than in the U.S. as a whole. Interesting and telling, especially given this country’s changing demographics.
Now how to we motivate the Latino community to take action? Ideas?
