Public Understanding of Climate Change Rebounds

Public Understanding Of Climate Science Rebounds, 72% of Independents Say There Is 'Solid Evidence' Of Global Warming


Brookings has released a new survey that confirms other recent polls: Public understanding of climate science is rebounding, and the recent record-smashing extreme weather events are playing a key role.

Just under two thirds of those who believe global warming is occurring stated that they were very confident of this position. This 63 percent confidence level is 14 percentage points higher than in the fall of 2011 and marks the highest level since the NSAPOCC began in 2008.
