National Surveys on Energy and Environment

Summary

The National Surveys on Energy and Environment (NSEE), is an on-going biannual national opinion survey on energy and climate policy. Launched in 2008, over time the NSEE has covered topics such as public policy approaches to address climate change including federal, state, and international action; energy policies such as cap-and-trade, carbon taxes, renewable energy requirements, vehicle emissions standards, and many more; and knowledge and attitudes about global warming, climate adaptation, fracking, and geoengineering. A special series of reports--NSEE@10--celebrates the survey’s 10th anniversary.

NSEE was co-founded by professor Barry Rabe at the University of Michigan and professor Christopher Borick at Muhlenberg College, and is fielded by the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion

For more information about the NSEE, contact CLOSUP staff at 734-647-4091 or closup-nsee@umich.edu. For more information on Muhlenberg's survey operations, see this Washington Post article quoting Christopher Borick.
