Nation 2013 benchmarks Australian attitudes to climate change, related
policies and solutions. In mid-2013 the report found that two-thirds of
Australians accept that climate change is real as well as a growing
understanding that climate impacts are already occurring, no longer just
threats for the future.
The report also finds that there is no foundation for claims that the
forthcoming Federal election is a “referendum on the carbon tax”, and
that a growing majority of Australians think that our country should be a
leader in finding climate solutions - a number that is up for the first
time since 2007, when The Climate Institute first started tracking
public attitudes towards climate change.
