Monmouth University
Americans overwhelmingly agree that climate change is a “serious problem,” and most say that the U.S. government should do more to address it. 73% of Americans recognize that the world’s climate is “undergoing a change that is causing more extreme weather patterns and the rise of sea levels”. 66% of Americans say that climate change is a “very” or “somewhat” serious problem. By a 59%-36% margin, more Americans support than oppose the U.S. government “doing more to reduce the type of activities that cause climate change and sea level rise”.
