Strong majorities of Americans continue to support U.S. involvement in the Paris climate agreement (69%), setting strict limits on carbon pollution from power plants (70%), and expanding our use of renewable energy (81%), according to this post-election national survey from the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication. Half of registered voters (51%) think policies to transition away from fossil fuels to clean energy will improve the economy, while 27% think such policies will hurt the economy.

Only 28% of Americans think climate scientists understand the causes of global climate change “very well”. Political ideology is the strongest predictor of this viewpoint: 54% of liberal Democrats say climate scientists understand very well the causes of climate change, compared with 11% of conservative Republicans. Just 27% of Americans say that almost all climate scientists agree human behavior is mostly responsible for climate change. 39% of adults trust climate scientists a lot to give full and accurate information about the causes of climate change. Yet despite their skepticism about scientists, 67% of Americans say climate scientists should have a major role in decision making about climate matters.
