A Sea Change in Public Opinion
Health motivates Americans to take climate action.
Remember last fall when it seemed each week brought a new report that warned how climate change will harm our health if we don't take action? Even if you can't recall the authors ( IPCC, NCA, WHO, and Lancet, for those keeping track), the message came through loud and clear: According to the American Climate Perspectives Survey 2019 from ecoAmerica, Americans perceive health as a major motivator for climate action.

The top four takeaways:

  • Over half of Americans report experiencing health impacts from climate change
  • Americans believe that creating a safe and healthy climate is a moral imperative
  • Two in three Americans understand that climate solutions benefit their health
  • Americans trust health professionals for information and guidance on climate change
