Poll: Large Majority of Americans Understand Global Warming Made Several Major Extreme Weather Events Worse
A new survey finds that by 2-to-1 Americans accurately understand global warming makes a number of extreme weather events worse.
This Yale survey matches a recent Brookings poll that found Americans’ understanding of climate change was increasing with more extreme weather and warmer temperatures. It also matches Yale’s earlier November survey finding.
This finding matches the results of September polling by ecoAmerica:
69% of Americans Know “Weather Conditions (Such as Heat Waves and Droughts) Are Made Worse by Climate Change”
57% of Americans understand “If we don’t do something about climate change now, we can end up having our farmland turned to desert.”
