Climate change is a top priority for President Joe Biden as he prepares to meet the world at the next international climate summit, COP26, in November. But how big of a priority is it for the American public? How much would they pay out of their own wallets to confront climate change? And, where do they stand on key issues?

On October 26, EPIC hosted a conversation with the 2021-2022 Visiting Fellows in Policy Practice Carlos Curbelo and Heather McTeer Toney. Curbelo and McTeer Toney dug into the results of an EPIC/AP-NORC poll conducted to track opinions on central topics shaping the energy and climate landscape in the United States. EPIC Director Michael Greenstone joined the conversation, which was moderated by The Atlantic’s Rob Meyer.
