ISTPP Researchers Published in Risk, Hazards & Crisis in Public Policy

ISTPP Director Arnold Vedlitz, along with ISTPP Associate Research Scientist Xinsheng Liu and ISTPP Fellow James Stoutenborough have published their article, “Trends in Public Attitudes Toward Climate Change: The Influence of the Economy and Climategate on Risk, Information, and Public Policy,” in Risk, Hazards & Crisis in Public Policy.

By comparing the public’s perceptions, attitudes and behaviors about climate change across three unique national surveys conducted in 2004, 2007 and 2013, the researchers examined two competing explanations – Climategate and the economic downturn, for the decline in public support to enact climate change policy in the United States following the high levels of support for climate policy seen in 2007.

This article was based on three separate national public opinion surveys. The 2004 survey and the 2007 survey were both conducted under research grants awarded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The third survey was funded by ISTPP and completed in 2013.
