This report is based on findings from a nationally representative survey – Climate Change in the American Mind – conducted by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication (climatecommunication.yale.edu) and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication (climatechangecommunication.org). Our nationally representative survey conducted shortly after the presidential election finds that the number of Americans “very worried” about global warming has reached a record high (19%), since first measured in 2008. A majority of Americans (61%) say they are “very” or “somewhat” worried about global warming – nearly equal to the highest level recorded in 2008 (62%). Likewise, Americans increasingly view global warming as a threat. Since Spring 2015, more Americans think it will harm people in developing countries, people in the U.S., future generations, their own family, and themselves personally.
