Thanks for helping. This very quick survey is designed to help me, a senior at the University of Minnesota, collect a range of different views from people who care about climate change. I'm writing my thesis on the premise that the lack of a "climate movement" has been one of the main reasons why the United States has been reluctant to take action to combat climate change. I specifically want to know your thoughts on building a social movement focused on reducing humanity's impact on the Earth's climate system.

The statements collected from this survey will then be used to create a list that represents a range of different ideas. This is a totally anonymous survey. I will never know who you are, unless you choose to let me know.

* 1. Please indicate how much you agree or disagree with the following statements:

  Strongly Agree Agree Neutral Disagree Strongly Disagree
"I think climate change is a daunting problem that has potential to drastically change life on earth."
"I actively participate in activities that seek to combat climate change."

* 2. In your opinion, what are two of the most important things to do to build a climate movement in the U.S.?

* 3. Are there some dead-end streets? What are two strategies that you think organizers should NOT invest time or energy in?

* 4. What personally makes you feel motivated? If possible, write a sentence or two about a time you chose to get involved with a cause.

* 5. In what year were you born?

* 6. What is your profession?
