Welsh Perceptions of Climate Change Survey


My colleagues at Cardiff University (Stuart Capstick and Nick Pidgeon) and I have just published the first survey of Welsh attitudes towards climate change. This project, which is largely the fruits of Stuart’s labour, is part of ongoing research within the Climate Change Consortium of Wales C3W. The survey found that a large majority of the Welsh public are of the view that the Earth’s climate is changing, and most accept at least some role for human activity in its causation. It also explores the impacts of the recent floods in Wales on perception of climate change, and public attitudes towards key adaptation strategies.
