ISU Rural Life Poll Finds Changes In Thought On “Climate Change”

Ames, Iowa — The latest edition of the “Iowa Farm and Rural Life Poll” from Iowa State University Extension finds a few shifts in thoughts about climate change.

J. Arbuckle oversees the poll and says they first asked the climate question in 2011, and added it again this past year.

The climate change question has been asked two other times and he says the number of people who believe it is an issue dropped in the recent poll.

Arbuckle says no matter what they think, farmers are trying to react.

Arbuckle says complementary research to survey finds the same reaction from farmers.

You can see the complete 2023 poll and past polls on the Iowa State University Extension website.
