Description

Most research on acceptance of climate change is conducted in the United States, where political ideology is a powerful predictor of climate change belief. However, these results may not translate worldwide given the idiosyncratic nature of the US two-party system and other differences in domestic politics. For instance, politicians in Latin America routinely draw on indigenous culture, which emphasizes connection to weather and the earth, to legitimize climate policies.
