Climate of the nation 2013: Australian attitudes on climate change

10th July 2013

Topic(s): Domestic policy, Policy law and regulation, Public engagement, Social research

Climate of the Nation 2013 benchmarks Australian attitudes to climate change, related policies and solutions. In mid-2013 the report found that two-thirds of Australians accept that climate change is real as well as a growing understanding that climate impacts are already occurring, no longer just threats for the future.

The report, from The Climate Institute, also finds that there is no foundation for claims that the 2013 Australian Federal election is a ‘referendum on the carbon tax’, and that a growing majority of Australians think that the country should be a leader in finding climate solutions - a number that is up for the first time since 2007, when The Climate Institute first started tracking public attitudes towards climate change.
