We study the psychological, cultural and political factors that shape public opinion and behavior, using surveys, experiments, interviews, statistical models, maps and participatory GIS, among other methods. We also conduct studies at the global, national, and local scales. Major projects include Climate Change in the American Mind, The Yale Climate Opinion Maps, and International Attitudes & Behavior.
We also publish Yale Climate Connections - an online climate news service and national radio broadcast.Learn more
