Climate Opinion Factsheets (2024)
Martial Jefferson, Adán Rivas, Jennifer Marlon et al. Yale Program on Climate Change Communication

Americans' opinions about climate change vary widely depending on where people live. Yale Program on Climate Communication just released a US Climate Opinion Factsheet Map tool. The factsheets include 22 key measures of public climate change knowledge, attitudes, policy support, and behavior for each of the 50 states, 271 congressional districts, and 3,142 counties across the U.S. The Factsheets make this state and local information even easier to use and share. The online tool allows you to tailor-make your own factsheet in English or Spanish by selecting the geographic location and the specific measures you’re interested in, including opinions on policies such as “Provide tax rebates for energy efficient vehicles or solar panels.” Factsheets can be saved as a PDF or printed for distribution to classes, community members, the media, business leaders, or elected officials.
