Post-Election Survey Shows Voters Support Action on Climate Change
December 15, 2016 | Grantee Publications | Climate Solutions

A survey conducted after the U.S. election finds that, across party lines, 69 percent of registered voters say the United States should participate in the international agreement to limit global warming, compared to only 13 percent who say it should not. The survey by the MacArthur-supported Yale Program on Climate Change Communication also found 70 percent of registered voters support setting strict carbon dioxide emission limits on coal-fired power plants, even if the cost of electricity increases. Half of registered voters think government policies intended to transition away from fossil fuels and toward clean energy will improve economic growth and provide new jobs. An interactive, state-by-state map further details the findings.
