International poll: How do people across the world view climate change?

International poll: How do people across the world view climate change?

New YouGov study of 30,000 people in 28 countries and regions uncovers noticeable differences in attitudes towards climate change between East and West

Climate change may never before have been as firmly fixed in the public consciousness as it is today. With 16-year-old campaigner Greta Thunberg set to speak at the UN’s Climate Action Summit this month, a new 28-country YouGov survey uncovers attitudes to climate change across the world.

 

Acknowledgment of mankind’s role in the changing climate is widespread

That climate change is happening and that humanity is at least partly responsible is a view held by the majority across the world. Indians are the most likely to think that human activity is the main reason the climate is changing, at 71%.

At 35% Norwegians and Saudi Arabians are the least likely to think this, although a further 36% and 48% respectively in each country think that humanity is partially responsible for the changing climate.
