While many polls consistently show that women are more likely than men to acknowledge climate science and support solutions, this poll from September 2017 found that the gender gap has evaporated on key questions of urgency to act and personal agency. Furthermore, on several questions involving personally experiencing climate impacts and shifting toward climate-friendly behavior (biking or walking, discussing climate change with friends, etc.), women of color have significantly more climate-friendly attitudes and behaviors, while white women have attitudes and behaviors that are the same as or in some cases worse than men overall.

A communication guide for IPCC climate scientists contains valuable insights for climate advocates as well, such as to focus on day-to-day experience, local stories, and values, not abstract numbers and science, among its six social science-based recommendations. It also features detailed practical guidance and examples. A short video based on the report is also available.
