Adaptation, Mitigation, and Geoengineering: 10 Years of Climate Action in the NSEE

December 1, 2018

This report examines American attitudes on how to respond to climate change. We look at preferences for focusing on adaptation or mitigation efforts, and at Americans’ beliefs on whether efforts to prevent further climate change can actually be effective. We also consider attitudes toward technological solutions to global warming, including American opinions on the effectiveness and safety of geoengineering. Finally, we look more closely at support for carbon dioxide removal.
