Abstract
Global warming has become a hotlydebated topic with much discussion occurring worldwide. The US is currently considering passing legislation mandating reductions in carbon emissions possibly coupled with taxes and/or a cap and trade system. But how much do people really know and understand about global warming and global warming policy? To find out we conducted a survey to assess the perceptions and general understanding of global warming issues among UW-Eau Claire students and Chippewa Valley households. We first ask if global warming is happening and how much cause for concern we should have regarding this issue? The survey then examines what strategies may be effective in addressing global warming. Our results highlight the similarities and differences between students and households as well as the uncertainty among both groups.
