SCSU Survey: Minnesotans Concerned About Climate Change
ST. CLOUD - The majority of Minnesotans believe that climate change is happening, and that it's mainly being caused by human activity. That's according to the results of the recently conducted St. Cloud State University fall survey.
The results show that about 90 percent of Minnesotans believe climate change is occurring now. Only seven percent say it is not happening. Meanwhile, 56 percent believe it's being caused by human activity, and 33 percent say it is mainly the result of natural causes.
Another question on the SCSU fall survey had to do with the proposed PolyMet mine for Northeast Minnesota. The survey indicated most Minnesotans weren't familiar with the project. Forty-one percent of the respondents indicated they didn't know whether or not they supported the mine, 28 percent support it, and 24 percent oppose.
The SCSU Survey will soon release results on immigration-related issues, and views on marijuana laws.
