Award-winning Climate Opinion Maps

Resource

Now you can go to Yale Climate Opinion Maps and see how the people in your town, county or Congressional District think about Climate Change!  At the top of the map, you can select from a drop-down list the question you want to see displayed – for example: Whether schools should teach about global warming, whether people trust climate scientists about global warming, or one of many other questions. The display will then show both the results for your area and how that compares to the national average.  It’s a great tool for learning about the views of the residents in your area, and is very easy to use!  Think about the value of this data in working with Administrators or other decision-makers! Students could also find it interesting to explore differences in your state and across the country.

The Yale Program on Climate Change Communication has just won the Warren J. Mitofsky Innovator's Award from the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR), the leading organization of survey researchers in the U.S., due to the cutting edge nature of their work. You’ll be amazed at the amount of information that’s displayed and how easy it is to access.
