A survey was carried out in Western Australia to determine community attitudes to global warming and proposed mitigation measures. Strong concern was identified, together with some confusion about the origins and effects of global warming. Support was evident for several proposed mitigation measures, although many respondents were uncertain about renewable energy options. The results of the survey point to a need for more education and information on specific aspects of these issues.
