Climate Insights 2020 Surveying American Public Opinion on Climate Change and the Environment

About the Project
This report is the first in a series by researchers at Stanford University, Resources for the Future, and ReconMR examining American public opinion on issues related to climate change—beliefs about existence and threat, as well as public support for government action and specific policy preferences. Since 1997, Stanford University Professor Jon Krosnick has explored American public opinion on these issues through a series of rigorous national surveys of random samples of American adults, often in collaboration with RFF.

For the 2020 iteration of the Climate Insights survey, 999 American adults were interviewed during the 80-day period from May 28, 2020 to August 16, 2020.
