Researchers at Yale University released their latest climate change polling, detailed by state, county, legislative district, and metro areas. The NY Times highlighted several general opinions from the study:
- Americans want to restrict carbon emissions from coal power plants. The White House and Congress may do the opposite.
- Most people think that climate change will harm Americans, but they don’t think it will happen to them.
- Texas and Florida are vulnerable to climate change, but residents are split on how much to worry about it.
Meanwhile, a recent Gallup poll shows that Americans’ concerns about climate change have been increasing for the last three years.
