An analysis of climate change opinions among U.S. residents by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communications compares the attitudes of audiences who regularly engage with content from six major U.S. news sources—CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, NPR, the Weather Channel, and national nightly news on CBS, ABC, or NBC. While the majority of all audiences are concerned about global warming, they all underestimate the scientific consensus and have different perceptions of climate change’s causes and impacts. According to the MacArthur-supported report, most audiences have an appetite for increased media coverage of climate change and see it as important to their vote in the 2020 election.
