Contents Notes This report brings the perspectives of researchers and climate change communicators together in an informal assessment of the state of current knowledge about public and policymaker attitudes and recommendations for future research. Participants from the research community and federal agencies represented three different orientations toward research and communications: Political Attitudes Research--reflecting a 15-year history of surveys into public attitudes about the seriousness and priority of climate change as a national policy issue; Behavioral Research--eflecting, in part, a 30-year history of advocacy research and social marketing in public health that informs the design and measures the results of interventions intended to change behavior (e.g., reduce smoking, lower blood pressure); and Climate Literacy Education--eflecting efforts by science-based federal agencies, such as NOAA and NASA, and informal science institutions (museums, aquariums, etc.) to create a more informed and engaged citizenry by improving public understanding of climate change science.
