National Environmental Education and Training Foundation, Washington, DC.; Roper Starch Worldwide Inc.
The results of this survey are widely distributed to educators, policymakers, business executives, and the media to help America's leaders and the general public better understand what Americans know about the environment and how that knowledge relates to their attitudes and daily actions. The 1999 National Report Card examines the results of a 10-question quiz that looks at basic environmental knowledge and the persistence of strongly held environmental "myths"; that is, outdated or erroneous information about the environment. Sections include: (1) "Environmental Attitudes"; (2) "Environmental Knowledge"; (3) "Environmental Activities"; and (4) "Conclusions and Recommendations." (CCM)
