The journal Global Environmental Change recently published an article we wrote examining the accuracy of perceptions about local climate conditions and whether they may be influenced by prior beliefs about the reality of global warming.

This holiday season, we’re giving #ClimateThanks. With friends and colleagues across the climate community, we are taking a moment to tweet or post who or what we are thankful for in the fight for a safe climate. Please Tweet #ClimateThanks and help us raise awareness about the amazing things people are doing and build a stronger sense of solidarity among the far-flung climate community.
We co-authored an original article using our research on public opinion about fracking, published in the journal Energy Policy.
We conducted a survey of Americans' views on hydraulic fracturing in September 2012
A majority of Americans have heard little or nothing about hydraulic fracturing.
Many Americans do not know if they support/oppose it or are undecided.
Those who have made a decision are evenly split between support and opposition.
Predictors of support include education, media use and top of mind associations.
