Please take a few minutes to share your opinion on climate change/global warming.

The UN climate talks, culminating in Paris in December this year, have the aim of achieving a legally binding and universal agreement from all the nations of the world on actions to prevent dangerous global warming, i.e. actions to keep climate change under 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels. This survey asks you about Australia’s role in these negotiations.

In April 2015 the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet stated: 'Australia has warmed by 0.9°C since 1910, with most of the warming since 1950. There has been a rise in sea levels of about 20 centimetres over the past century, increased ocean acidification and a shift in rainfall patterns'.

* 1. How concerned are you about climate change?

Actions you would like to see Australia take to address climate change

* 10. Is there anything else you would like our state or federal governments to do to address climate change?

* 11. How important is the issue of climate change in determining your vote at the next election?

The following questions assist us in understanding a little about the people who complete this survey.
