Public Attitudes to Climate Change (ESS8 2016)
The module on public attitudes to climate change, energy security and energy preferences will be fielded for the first time in 2016. The module will cover four broad areas, namely (1) beliefs on climate change, (2) concerns about climate change and energy security, (3) personal norms, efficacy and trust, and (4) energy preferences. The module aims to increase our understanding of how Europeans' perceptions of climate change, energy security and energy preferences are shaped by national socio-political factors; examine the role of socio-political values and engagement; and examine the relative importance of individual-motivational versus national-contextual variables in public energy preferences.
