There is a scientific consensus that human-caused climate change is happening, but there are a range of views among the public about how much to care, or what, if anything, to do about it.

Available expert:

Dr. Jonathon Schuldt is an associate professor of communication at Cornell University and Executive Director of the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research. He can discuss topics including:

  • Factors that predict people’s attitudes about climate change;
  • The psychology of how people think about climate change;
  • Trends in public attitudes about climate change over time;
  • How language matters—for example, how people have reacted differently to the phrase “climate change” compared to “global warming”; and
  • Common misperceptions about climate-related attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors.
