Researchers at Utah State University and Yale University have mapped public opinion about global warming across the US. Their study published Monday in Nature Climate Change reveals the diversity of opinions at state and local levels.
A majority of people in every state believe that climate change is happening, but the numbers vary. Nationally, an average of 63% say they are believers. In Utah, it’s 60%. Peter Howe is an Assistant Professor at Utah State University and lead author of the paper.
