In an online survey of British Columbians commissioned by the Pembina Institute and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions at the University of Victoria, 79% of respondents stated that they are concerned about global warming. A majority are willing to pay more carbon tax if the revenue is directed toward social programs such as health care, education, or reduction of greenhouse gas pollution; 70% would oppose carbon tax increases if the revenue were used to reduce taxes on corporations. In general though, support for the B.C. carbon tax has dropped by 12% since 2011, according to this survey.
