Most U.S. adults – including a solid majority of Christians and large numbers of people who identify with other religious traditions – consider the Earth sacred and believe God gave humans a duty to care for it, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. But highly religious Americans are far less likely than other U.S. adults to express concern about warming temperatures around the globe. The survey finds that the main driver of U.S. public opinion about the climate is political party, not religion, and highly religious Americans are more inclined than others to identify with or lean toward the Republican Party. In addition, many religious Americans voice concerns about the potential consequences of environmental regulations.
