Webcast available

Webcast Recap

The Canada Institute hosted a discussion on Canadian and American attitudes toward climate change, featuring findings from the Fall 2015 round of ongoing survey work in both nations. Key themes include public views on whether climate change is occurring, response to a range of possible policy options across levels of government, and reaction to Pope Francis' recent engagement on the issue. The U.S. side of this work includes an early look at how Americans want their states to respond to the new Clean Power Plan.
