Climate Change: Majority Of Americans Want The Government To Fight Climate Change

Majority Of Americans Want The Government To Fight Climate Change

A recent survey of Americans found that 61 percent of them think climate change is an issue and the government ought to do something to confront it. The political breakdown finds 43 percent of Republicans and 80 percent of Democrats see climate change as an issue the government needs to address.

The survey was conducted by the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago and The Associated Press Center for Public Affairs Research. In total, the results represent all 50 states and D.C. and were randomly drawn from AmeriSpeak.

This stands in contrast to the current administration's stance on climate change and action to mitigate future threats. When surveyors asked about political decisions associated with climate change, the largest share stated that they oppose President Trump's withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement and repeal of the Clean Power Plan.

From Trump's standpoint, he stands in a position where the minority of his party supports government action on climate change, while the majority of the country supports action. However, the statistic involves two beliefs, one that climate change is happening and the other that the government should work to mitigate it.
