In this research episode, we take a look at our American Climate Perspective Survey titled: Climate Change: The More You Know, The More You Care with report co-author, Nicole Hill, MPH.
As the country recovers from extreme winter storms that disrupted life across the nation, a new study finds that the majority of Americans are concerned about climate change. ecoAmerica’s latest American Climate Perspectives Survey also identified driving forces behind climate concern. Findings reveal that a notable gap exists in actual versus perceived climate change concern and many Americans don’t know what their local community is doing to address the issue. And, while companies and government agencies have rolled out incentives for Americans to participate in solutions, few think they’re accessible right now.
