Climate change less politicized among minority groups

Race and ethnicity as a function of climate-change attitudes is the subject of a recent study. The analysis revealed some key insights. Although a person's politics (as a liberal or a conservative) is normally a strong predictor of their climate opinions, the work has found that when it comes to the opinions of non-whites, politics matters less than it does for whites. Non-whites were also less likely to consider themselves "environmentalists," even though their climate opinions largely matched those of whites.
