Almost 60 percent of Americans say climate change is currently affecting their local community. Most Americans say the federal government is doing too little to protect water (69 percent) and air quality (64 percent). Two-thirds of Americans believe the government is doing too little to reduce the negative effects of climate change (67 percent).


The survey was conducted in the United States from March 27 to April 9 by Pew Research Center. The result, based on 2541 respondents, finds that the perceptions of climate change are closely related to political party affiliation. More than three-quarters of Democrats (76 percent) say climate change is affecting their local community, while only one-third of Republicans say so (35 percent). In addition, 89 percent of Democrats say the federal government has done an insufficient job projecting air quality, while just 26 percent of Republicans say so. 


Global climate change is indeed happening, according to NASA: Evidence from rising global temperature, warming oceans, shrinking ice sheets, glacial retreat, and more. Furthermore, researchers Steve Nerem from the University of Colorado-Boulder found that sea levels rising and climate change accelerating (CNN).
