A new poll shows that Texans are increasingly concerned about climate change, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The poll, conducted by Climate Nexus, the Yale University Program on Climate Change Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication found that more than 60 percent of Texas voters are worried about climate change and almost two-thirds of voters support government action on the issue.

Two-thirds of voters also said they support developing more renewable energy sources as “the top priority for addressing Texas’s energy needs.”

The poll comes as the Texan Democratic party is gearing up to galvanize voters ahead of 2020 for key wins in the Republican stronghold.
