What Do Americans Think About The Direction of Energy And Climate Policy?

Are our government leaders doing enough to confront climate change, or too much? How much would Americans pay out of their own wallets to confront climate change? Where do they stand on key issues such as the use of hydraulic fracturing, construction of the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines, repeal of the Clean Power Plan, and withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement? 

Join us as we host a conversation with our inaugural policy fellows Jeffrey R. Holmstead and Susan Tierney. Holmstead and Tierney will dig into the results of a new EPIC/AP-NORC poll conducted annually to track opinions on central topics shaping the energy and climate landscape in the United States. The conversation will be moderated by the Associated Press Global Health and Science Editor Jon Fahey.
