Dear Friends,

As the world descends on Glasgow, Scotland for the 26th UN Conference to negotiate a global response to climate change, we are pleased to release a short report, on Americans’ public support for international action, from our latest national survey.

One of the critical issues to be discussed at the Glasgow conference is financial support from wealthier countries that have emitted the most carbon pollution to help developing countries that have emitted the least carbon pollution and are the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

We find growing majority support among registered voters for the U.S. providing financial aid and technical support to developing countries to limit their greenhouse gas emissions (i.e., mitigation, 66%, +8 percentage points since our previous survey in March 2021) and to help them prepare for the impacts of global warming (i.e., adaptation, 61%, +7 percentage points).
