With Carbon Brief, DHA designed an opinion poll of the UK public on attitudes to issues relating to energy and climate change.
The poll was designed to understand public opinion on key debates, including:
- Support for different forms of electricity generation – nationally and when built locally;
- Views on shale gas fracking
- Expectations of the impacts of climate change on the UK
- Perceptions of whether recent extreme weather could be linked with climate change
Carbon Brief used the results of the poll in several front-page articles, exploring the implications of the findings for debates about energy and climate change.
