Daniel Swain in Charlotte Observer, Disasters influence thinking on climate change

Daniel Swain, a climate scientist at UCLA, weighs in on a new poll about public opinion on climate change. 

“A new poll finds 74 percent of Americans say extreme weather in the past five years — hurricanes, droughts, floods and heat waves — has influenced their opinions about climate change.”

For Daniel Swain the willingness of Americans to pay at least some extra money to tackle climate change is “actually still a pretty strong signal.”
