Abstract

Climate change is one of the defining issues of modern times. Public and private opinions about climate change have shaped elections, mobilised social movements supporting and opposing action on climate change, and sparked changes in individuals’ and communities’ behaviors. Opinions about climate change matter.
In this chapter, we summarise some highlights from our five-year national research
program on public understandings of climate change in Australia.
