Abstract

As government leaders across this globe still seek to find a replacement for the Kyoto Protocol, it is appropriate to explore the views of the general public, cross-nationally, on global climate change. What is their level of concern? How well informed are they? What general policy alternatives do they seem to support? In short, what generalisations, if any, can we make about the public’s appreciation of and willingness to address this critical global issue and how might we explain the patterns in the findings?
