Acceptance of Global Warming Among Americans Moderately Increases in Late 2014

Sunday, February 1, 2015

 

Abstract

The fall 2014 version of the National Surveys on Energy and Environment (NSEE) finds 60% of Americans believe that there is solid evidence of increasing temperatures on Earth. These findings represent a moderate rebound from the three-year low posted in the spring of 2014, when 55% of Americans held this position. The 5% increase over those six months brings the overall acceptance rate close to the seven-year NSEE average of 62%, but is still far below the high (72%) posted in fall 2008.
