Abstract

This report responds to the evolving American debate over alternative roles that federal and state governments might play in attempting to address the issue of climate change, including specific policies that have either been enacted or remain under serious consideration in Washington, D.C. or in state capitals. The findings are drawn from a Fall 2012 telephone survey conducted under the auspices of the National Surveys on Energy and Environment (NSEE), which reflect a formal partnership between the Muhlenberg Institute of Public Opinion at Muhlenberg College and the Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan. This survey secured responses from 917 American citizens, drawn from all regions of the nation and comprising a statistically representative profile of the citizenry.
