The objective of the project is to evaluate the public’s knowledge about global warming and ocean acidification. In order to find out how aware different demographic groups of people are of ocean acidification , their prospective opinions on different solution methods to it, and how their opinions have changed after the survey. We represented the demographics through standard qualities regarding race, age, gender, financial status, religion, political affiliation and education. We distributed the survey through Mturk, an online global pool of participants. The results of the survey may help us gain insight of how the awareness of climate change and ocean acidification would change with different demographic factors. We can use the results to form better strategies to raise awareness of climate change and ocean acidification of different groups accordingly, thus motivate them to take a course of action.
