In partnership with Thurston County and LOTT Clean Water Alliance, Thurston County Climate Action Team (TCAT) developed a survey to gauge public opinion about clean energy and climate change. TCAT asked the Port of Olympia to help distribute the survey to Thurston County residents.

The survey is part of TCAT’s work to raise awareness about climate change and to implement practical clean energy solutions. Thurston County residents can take the survey online until July 5. Click here to take the survey.

Thurston County and LOTT have committed financial support for the survey. In addition, faculty members from the three higher education institutions in the county collaborated on the design and implementation of the survey. The team recruited area college students to make survey phone calls during the week of June 22.

TCAT hopes survey results will help local elected officials make effective decisions about policies and investments to promote clean energy in local communities, while reducing our carbon footprint.

Results of the survey will be available in September on the Thurston Climate Action Team website, www.thurstonclimateaction.org. Results will also be reported to local elected officials in September and October, including to the Port Commission at its September study session.

Those interested in additional information about the survey can contact TCAT at survey@thurstonclimateaction.org
