Water Quality Concerns Idahoans

Idahoans said they were most concerned about water quality of all of the environmental issues facing them. They shared that concern with residents polled in Oregon and Washington by DHM Research is an independent and non-partisan public opinion research and consultation firm based in Portland, Ore. But they weren’t as concerned. And Idahoans were less willing to drive less and consumer less to combat climate change. But more said they should spend less and adjust their lifestyle to address the poor economy. The poll was a part of environmental journalism collaboration by public radio stations in Idaho, Oregon and Washington and Idaho Public Television. DHM Research polled 1,200 people in the region, with 400 in each state. The online survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent/Rocky Barker (pictured), Statesman. More here.

Question: How can Idahoans say they're concerned about the environment but not that green overall?
