The polarization of environmental politics has forced scholars to examine public opinion because it is often a driver of public policy. A robust field of research has attempted to ascertain what the public thinks as well as why they think this way, while some studies have attempted to determine if these opinions can be changed, examining opinion from a variety of perspectives. This chapter provides an overview of this evolving literature, with a focus on the traditional determinants and the more recent contributions to our understanding of environmental public opinion. Additionally, this chapter will examine some of the data limitations associated with public opinion data and a few of the methodological techniques that have been introduced to reduce the impact of these limitations.
