PRRI/AAR National Survey on Religion, Values, and Climate Change

The 2014 Religion, Values & Climate Change Survey was designed and conducted by Public Religion Research Institute in association with the American Academy of Religion and funded by The Nathan Cummings Foundation and The Ford Foundation. The survey results were released at the 2014 AAR Annual Meeting in San Diego on Saturday, November 22.  

The survey of 3,000 Americans is one of the largest surveys on religion and climate change ever conducted. It explores a range of topics, including Americans' belief or skepticism about the reality of climate change; the roles that partisanship, religion, and media consumption play in the development of those views; whether Americans see climate change as a manageable problem or an imminent crisis; how committed Millennials are to the issue of climate change; and how important policies that address climate change are to different religious groups.
