The Demographics Of Disagreement On Climate Change
Last week the UNH Survey Center released the latest findings of the Granite State Poll. The Survey Center has been following a number of issues recently, the most high profile of which is whether or not there’s public support in New Hampshire for a proposed casino.
The Survey Center has also been part of a project looking at public attitudes about climate change – namely, why there’s a consensus among scientists – but not the public - that global warming is happening and caused by human activity.
Larry Hamilton has been looking at this question and what the survey data can tell us. He’s a sociologist and senior fellow at the Carsey Institute at UNH. He talks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson.
