Have you ever wondered about the percent of adults in the United States who think global warming is happening, risk perceptions and support for various global warming policies?

The Yale Project on Climate Change Communications has some fascinating and useful maps on the perceptions of adults on climate change.You can view the Yale Climate Opinion Maps at four scales: national, state, congressional district and county.  There are several maps in three groups: beliefs, risk perceptions and policy support.
