058 - Everyone's accepting climate (but polarisation is still a thing)

I've been collecting Essential Vision's data on climate science acceptance for quite some time - the data set's here. I recently added a second section tracking the % of people who concur with the scientific view, by party voting preference.

There's no decrease in polarisation - the gap between parties has remained roughly equal. But every single party has seen an increased percentage of people accepting the science.

The only recent decrease has been in the 'other' vote - for the first time on record, Liberal party voters are more likely to accept climate science than minor party voters.
