    Attitudes On Climate, By The Numbers (Part 1) The Politics of Climate

    Cary Funk and Brian Kennedy, October 4, 2016 (Pew Research Center)

    “Political fissures on climate issues extend far beyond beliefs about whether climate change is occurring and whether humans are playing a role, according to a new, in-depth survey by Pew Research Center. These divisions reach across every dimension of the climate debate, down to people’s basic trust in the motivations that drive climate scientists to conduct their research… Seven-in-ten liberal Democrats (70%) trust climate scientists’ a lot to give full and accurate information about the causes of climate change, compared with just 15% of conservative Republicans… Some 54% of liberal Democrats say climate scientists’ understand the causes of climate change very well. This compares with only 11% among conservative Republicans and 19% among moderate/liberal Republicans…Some 55% of liberal Democrats say climate research reflects the best available evidence most of the time, 39% say some of the time. By contrast, 9% of conservative Republicans say this occurs most of the time, 54% say it occurs some of the time…” click here for more

    Attitudes On Climate, By The Numbers (Part 2) The Politics of Climate; The Climate-Engaged Public

    Cary Funk and Brian Kennedy, October 4, 2016 (Pew Research Center)

    “…Some 36% of Americans are deeply concerned about climate issues, saying they personally care a great deal about the issue of global climate change. This group is composed primarily of Democrats (72%), but roughly a quarter (24%) is Republican. Some 55% are women, making this group slightly more female than the population as a whole. But, they come from a range of age and education groups and from all regions of the country…[Ppeople’s expressions of care are strongly correlated with their views, separate and apart from their partisan and ideological affiliations…Most, but not all, among those with more personal concern about climate issues say the Earth’s warming is due to human activity. They are largely pessimistic about climate change…[but] quite optimistic about efforts to address climate change…This group is more likely than others to see scientists as understanding climate issues. Two-thirds (67%) of this more climate-engaged public trusts climate scientists a lot to provide full and accurate information about the causes of climate change…” click here for more

    Attitudes On Climate, By The Numbers (Part 3) The Politics of Climate; Strong bipartisan support for expanding solar, wind energy production

    Cary Funk and Brian Kennedy, October 4, 2016 (Pew Research Center)

    “…One spot of unity in an otherwise divided environmental policy landscape is that the vast majority of Americans support the concept of expanding both solar and wind power…[T]here are substantial party and ideological divides over increasing nuclear energy [and fossil fuel sources like coal mining, offshore oil and gas drilling, and hydraulic fracturing for oil and natural gas but] strong majorities of all political groups support more solar and wind production…Some 41% of Americans say they have given serious consideration to installing solar panels at home (including 4% who report they have already done so). Their reasons include both cost savings and help for the environment…Two-thirds of homeowners in the West have considered or installed solar panels, compared with 35% of homeowners in the South, 40% in the Midwest and 38% in the Northeast…” click here for more
