National Environmental Education and Training Foundation, Washington, DC.
This study investigates environmental knowledge, attitudes, and behavior among adult Americans. Public attitudes as they exist today and how they have changed over the past seven years are evaluated. A nationally representative sample of 2,000 Americans aged 18 and older were surveyed by Roper Starch Worldwide in May, 1998. Part 1 presents environmental knowledge and environmental myths. Part 2 discusses support for the government's role in protecting the environment. Part 3 features environmental activities. The research methodology is explained and an appendix is included that summarizes change in attitude over time and analyzes responses by gender. (CCM)
