Americans were slightly more likely to disapprove than approve of the way Obama has handled climate change, on average. On the right, critics tend to think the administration’s proposals are expensive and overwrought. On the left, detractors worry Obama isn’t doing enough, and the recent Supreme Court defeat on carbon emissions only continues to delay action. Still, Americans are mostly split on this issue, and the topic only barely made this list.
