Abstract

The fall 2014 version of the National Surveys on Energy and Environment (NSEE) finds 60% of Americans believe that there is solid evidence of increasing temperatures on Earth. These findings represent a moderate rebound from the three-year low posted in the spring of 2014, when 55% of Americans held this position. The 5% increase over those six months brings the overall acceptance rate close to the seven-year NSEE average of 62%, but is still far below the high (72%) posted in fall 2008.
