Climate change: Who believes it?

Screenshot of interactive map from Yale Project on Climate Change Communication.

Earlier this month, the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication took data it had gathered between 2008 and 2014 and released this nifty interactive map that allows you to see what people in the United States think about climate change. You can sort data by specific opinions (e.g., Will climate change harm me personally? Will global warming harm future generations?) And you can sort the data by U.S. states, congressional districts and counties.

Play around with the map and then check out GSR’s graphic below, which highlights some of the national trends.
