Description
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) involves trapping carbon dioxide (CO2) from power generation and heavy industrial processes and directing it into long-term geological storage (e.g. in depleted oil fields or saline aquifers). In doing so, CCS could facilitate global carbon abatement efforts. Yet, it remains controversial with high-profile public opposition to particular CCS developments. This dataset contains findings from a large-scale international experimental study of public perceptions of CCS. The study examined how individual, geographical and informational factors influence support for CCS.
Specifically this dataset presents the results of a large (N=5406) sample of publics from five countries in two continents. Participants completed an online survey on their perceptions of with CCS. Their responses were anonymised and identifiable information removed, but otherwise raw data are provided in a combination of free text and numerical (scale) responses.
Research results based upon these data are published at https://doi.org/10.1057/s41599-019-0217-x
