Attitudes about Global Warming in the United States: A Data-Driven Learning Guide Go to Resource

Summary

There has been much discussion in the media over the condition of the natural environment and what can be done to decrease pollution and preserve natural resources. Activists have adopted an approach that appeals toward educating the general public and pressuring national governments and policymakers to act in ways that demonstrate a greater concern for the quality of the natural environment. Much of the discussion in the media over the past two decades has centered upon global warming.

The goal of this module is to explore some of the factors that might be associated with an individual's level of concern about the environment and global warming. Crosstabulations, frequency distributions, and bar charts will be used.
