Climate Change in the American Mind Series, June 2010

We produced four reports based on nationally representative survey of 1,024 American adults conducted between May 14th and June 1st, 2010.  This updates the reports we released in January. Overall, we find little change in Americans' climate and energy behaviors. We continue to find a substantial attitude-behavior gap for many behaviors, suggesting that there is a lot of untapped potential for behavior change programs.

Our first report shows that public concern about global warming is once again on the rise. Click here to download the Climate Change in the American Mind: the Americans’ Global Warming Beliefs and Attitudes in June 2010.

Our second report indicates that more than seven out of 10 Americans want the United States should take action to power the nation with clean energy. Click here to download the Climate Change in the American Mind: Public Support for Climate & Energy Policies in June 2010.

The third report points to a rise in support for funding more research into renewable energy sources. Click here to download the report Americans' Actions to Conserve Energy, Reduce Waste, and Limit Global Warming: June 2010.

Our fourth report –  the Global Warming's Six Americas, June 2010  –  shows that the proportion of Americans most concerned about climate change – Alarmed Americans – rebounded slightly, while the proportion of Americans least concerned about climate change – Dismissive Americans – decreased slightly.

Supplemental figures illustrating policy support among the Six Americas can be downloaded here.
