Public understanding of human-caused climate change and support for actions to curb its damaging global impact has shifted dramatically in recent years. Recent surveys show that, since a sharp drop five years ago, there’s been a promising upswing in what Americans know about global warming and their willingness to take action. Anthony Leiserowitz, Ph.D., a leading expert on climate change and public opinion in the United States and internationally, will report on the latest trends in Americans’ global warming knowledge, attitudes, policy support, and behavior. He will also discuss the influential role of the media, strategies for improving public engagement, and how the U.S. compares to countries such as China and India. Open to the public.
