AP News's Tammy Webber and Linley Sanders are reporting that more Americans see climate change as a major issue after this year's summer’s extreme weather.
An AP-NORC poll shows that more Americans are attributing extreme weather events, particularly this summer's record-shattering heatwaves, to climate change.
About 87% of Americans claim to have experienced extreme weather in the past five years, up from 79% in April, and 64% believe climate change is partly responsible.
The poll reveals a stark difference between Democrats (93% attributing climate change) and Republicans (48%). Despite some skepticism, individuals who faced scorching temperatures are reconsidering their views.
