Climate Facts


Did you know?
Seventy percent (70%) of Americans think our planet is warming, up 7 percent from just two years ago. Also, people's certainty about this fact has been steadily growing, increasing 12 percent over the last three years and reaching the highest levels since 2008. This is according to a newly released report by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication.

How do Hoosiers' climate change opinions measure up to the national data? We are still awaiting state-level results of the most resent polls, but we know from 2016 data that just 64 percent of Hoosiers thought the world was warming.

Through the Indiana Climate Change Impacts Assessment (IN CCIA), we strive to put global change into local perspective by helping Hoosiers understand that climate change is happening and it affects all of us.
