Project: Public Awareness of Carbon Capture and Storage: A Survey of Attitudes toward Climate Change Mitigation

Research Team: Holly Javedan and Howard Herzog

Sponsors: Carbon Sequestration Initiative

Year: 2012

The results for the 4th survey on attitudes toward climate change mitigation are given here. Initiated in 2003, the survey has been administered every three years with essentially the same 22 questions. Therefore, we can track how opinions have changed over time. Three important areas of the survey are problem recognition, technological awareness, and willingness to pay. The graphical summary gives the survey results for 2012 and compares them to the prior years results.
