Yale Poll Reveals Changing American Opinions Toward Climate Change

American Opinions on Global Warming – Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies

 

This is some really interesting stuff. You can see how American opinions are changing and that climate change is starting to influence people’s thinking more and more. I was, however, surprised at the numbers of people who don’t think we’re making a negative impact as well as the number of people who don’t think we as individuals can help. Another thought provoking piece is that it seems that most Americans want policy changes that reduce our impact on the environment, but are unwilling to accept an increase in energy taxes.
