Founded in 2008 by Phillip Mitchell-Taverner and Randall Pearce and operated by Think Taverner Pty Ltd, a partnership between Taverner Research and Think: Insight & Advice Pty Ltd, Thermometer Survey was offered as a commercial syndicated research service until early 2010.
A decision was subsequently made to donate the intellectual property, historical data and trademarks to the newly-formed Thermometer Foundation for Social Research on Climate Change so that the original vision of Thermometer as an ongoing monitor of community opinion could be continued and enhanced.
On this site you will find information about the Foundation, it’s directors and the exciting plans we have for building a repository of climate change related data and expertise on research methods, public communication and mass behaviour change strategies. You can also access past reports produced through Thermometer Survey.
We are looking forward to an exciting year in 2011! We hope that you will check back with us often, or follow Randall Pearce on Twitter @thermometerise.
