Stanford University Public Opinion Surveys on Global Warming (2013): U.S. Maps of Key Survey Findings

On November 13, 2013, Stanford University Professor Jon Krosnick released new state level data on Americans’ views on climate change.  The Stanford Geospatial Center created several maps to display Professor Krosnick's key findings.  Professor Krosnick is the Frederic O. Glover Professor in Humanities and Social Sciences at Stanford University and a Senior Fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment.  Stanford University Visiting Scholar Bo MacInnis collaborated with Professor Krosnick on this project.
