Climate Barometer makes sense of what people think about climate change.

An informed and responsive understanding of public and political opinion is crucial – for the climate movement, for journalists reporting on unfolding events, or for politicians who need a clear brief, fast.

There’s an abundance of climate opinion insights. But data is scattered, so the story can be difficult to follow.

Climate Barometer provides a signal in the noise, curating timely insights on what people think about climate change.

By monitoring and interpreting opinion insights across a range of topics, themes and narratives, Climate Barometer supports informed decision making in the heat of the moment. And our twice-yearly survey of public and MP opinion on climate change helps make sense of changes over time.

The Team

Climate Barometer is run by climate communications specialists. We have more than three decades of experience between us in social science research on climate change, working with campaigners, political strategists and decision-makers across the climate movement.
