Georgians want the state to take a stand on climate change

External News Details

Roughly 60 percent of Georgians want state leaders to set goals to reduce the effects of climate change, according to a recently released poll by Georgia Tech. Some local governments like Atlanta have created climate strategies but Georgia has no state-level plan to curtail carbon emissions and address a global problem. Commissioned for use by climate researchers, the survey was designed by Georgia Tech and University of Georgia professors affiliated with Drawdown Georgia, an initiative that lays out policy ideas the state could use to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Kim Cobb, Georgia Power Chair and ADVANCE Professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, and Director of Georgia Tech's Global Change Program, is on Drawdown Georgia's core research team.
