What do Americans really think about climate change, and what should we do about it?

America Cimate Attitudes report coverWeb of Changer Cara Pike and her colleague at the Social Capital Project, Meredith Herr, have published a must-read analysis of more than 90 polls and journal articles on climate communications and behavior change published since 2008.

Their analysis points to significant challenges. Climate attitudes in the US have taken a turn for the worse, and evidence is strong that well-funded opponents of taking action on climate change have eroded public support for action.

At the same time, they find that a majority of Americans do understand that climate change is a reality and are worried about it.

The opportunity lies in linking American's awareness and concern about the issue to meaningful public engagement.

Cara and Meredith lay out the public opinion facts, analyze the implications, and offer recommendations to climate communicators to move forward.

Read it on the Social Capital Project website, and be better armed to make a difference on climate change.

Now days, you never know when

Now days, you never know when someone is going to come onto your property, uninvited, and see if they can either steal something, or do some needless vandalism. Most burglaries and property destruction happen when people are away from home. eyeonhome

I believe everything composed made a ton of sense. But, what about this?
whjat iff you were to create a awesome headline? I
ain't suggeting your content is not good, but what if you added
a title that grabbed folk's attention? I mean Add Your Comment | Web of Change is kinda vanilla.
Youu might peek at Yahoo's home pzge and watch how they create news titles to
geet viewerfs to open the links. Youu might add a related
video or a pic or two tto get people excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it would make
your website a little bit ore interesting.
