Abstract/Description:
Climate change is defined as the change of the global climate patterns which is caused by natural occurrences and human activities facilitated by the increased use of fossil fuels. Climate change is a prominent issue today, with people having conflicting viewpoints about it. Government intervention on the subject of climate change is widely debated. To understand the differing perspectives on climate change, we developed an online survey consisting of 12 questions. We gathered 500 responses from people all over the United States. Overall, our findings showed that people believe in climate change. However, there is a statistically significant difference on the views of climate change based on people’s party affiliation. Republicans were the highest group of all the political parties surveyed to say that the government should not have a concern for climate change. This survey depicts the conventional view that Republicans hold on the issue of climate change.
