Poll: climate action by Wills citizens
Poll: climate action by Wills citizens

A new poll of 15,000 Australians conducted by YouGov for the Australian Conservation Foundation has found that a substantial majority of Australians want governments to take climate action and set ambitiuos interim climate targets, and stop funding coal and gas.

Citizens in Moreland as part of this poll showed a much greater concern than the national average on all the question polled.

Conclusions. Compare results Wills and National averageWills National Average
Voters believe greater climate action will help nature and wildlife survive extreme weather.84% 79%
Voters do not believe that new coal or gas power stations should be a priority for the federal government.78%71%
Voters believe the federal government need to be doing more to address climate change.79%67%
Voters say Labor and Coalition plans for climate action will influence their vote.76%67%

However, even electorates in rural or coal regions supported greater climate action, more renewables and no new coal or gas.

The questions:

At the next federal election, how important to your vote is action on climate change from the major parties?
