Why Did We Write This Report?
PEOPLE NEED BETTER INFORMATION
Studies show that the majority of Americans are supportive of environmental protection, but that two-thirds of Americans lack simple knowledge of key environmental concerns. This gap in understanding makes it more difficult for the public to know what they can do to protect the environment and to support policies addressing tough environmental issues.
