Americans’ Understanding of Climate Change is on the Rise
Thankfully, Americans’ understanding of climate change is trending upwards as seen in the chart below.
And although not enough is being done by government (including negative progress at the federal level), the will of the people for action on climate change in the US is strong:
- 82% support funding research into renewable energy sources.
- 74% support regulating CO2 as a pollutant.
- 69% think global warming will harm future generations
We’re starting to get it! We now need to translate these desires into actions, quickly.

I believe reversing global warming is humanity’s #1 priority, so I write to help crowdsource more sustainability into the world. I do this for people. I do this so we can live in a healthier, safer, more prosperous, and more just society.
