Why you should care

Because numbers don’t lie.

Ahead of Earth Day, we at OZY decided to get our hands dirty with more than planting trees. We wanted to figure out not just what the country thinks about the environment and the changing climate — but also what people are doing about it. So we rang up our good friends at SurveyMonkey to help us take America’s pulse.

From March 13‐16, SurveyMonkey and OZY polled 3,958 adults selected from the nearly 3 million people who take surveys on the SurveyMonkey platform each day. The modeled error estimate for the full sample is plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. Results have been weighted for age, race, sex, education and geography using census data to reflect America’s demographics. For more on SurveyMonkey’s methodology, click here.

You can see the results below (numbers may not add up to 100 due to rounding). Cross-tabs for results broken down by age, race, gender and political persuasion can be found here. We also welcome suggestions for future intriguing topics to poll at polls@ozy.com.
