Abstract: This presentation will discuss the results of the recent European Social Survey module on attitudes to energy and climate change. Various aspects are covered including beliefs and concerns about climate change, expectations as to who will do what and how much to resolve the problem, policy preferences, attitudes and behaviours relating to energy usage, preferences between different energy sources and concerns about energy production. Both the broad pan-European character of the attitudes and cross-national differences will be reviewed.
