Yale Climate Opinion
HOT ENOUGH FOR YOU? Arkansans agree the planet is warming, though fewer attribute it to human causes.

This link takes you to a version of the map above in which you can see the percentage in every county.

Many counties in Arkansas fall below the national average, but all seem to be in the majority. Pulaski County is at 69 percent. Phillips County matches that rate of belief in warming.  It’s interesting to see the higher belief in Delta counties.

However: Percentages drop to a bare majority nationwide who believe human activity is the cause of the warming planet.  Only a handful of counties in Arkansas report a majority in that column, led by Pulaski with 55 percent.

Note there are a range of questions on climate changes measure in the Yale survey.
