In most countries, differences in party and age change attitudes. Amid the chaos, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change dropped the first part of its latest climate report, which outlined how our current choices will shape the planet's future. This all seems like a good time to consider public perceptions of climate change.
The results of the above line are pretty straightforward. 72 percent of those surveyed were somewhat concerned or very concerned about personal injury due to climate change. A higher proportion (80%) wanted to change their lifestyle to reduce the effects of climate change. However, on average, there are different feelings about whether the global community is doing everything it needs to do, with only 56% feeling we are doing well and 52% not sure that, finally, we are doing whatever we need to do. .Not everyone is sure that climate change will be a major problem in all around life. Pew Research
As you can see in the graph, there was a lot of variation between countries. European countries were among the most worried, and the United States, Canada, and most of the Pacific nations went to extremes. (The exception is South Korea, which has the largest population everywhere.)Advertising
In many countries, Pew had data from five years ago for comparison. This data shows that Germany saw the largest increase in weather concerns (up 19 degrees) and other EU countries where data is available saw growth as well. On the contrary, the concern that you would be personally affected, albeit slightly, has diminished. Concerned about exposure to personal injury from climate change. The longest distance between them and people over 65 was in Sweden (40 points) and New Zealand (31 points). While it was the shortest distance in England (11 points). Women in most countries were about 10 points more concerned than men.
There was also a gap between left and right, and liberals were more likely to wait until they were hurt. If you hear that the distance is the widest in the US, you will be very surprised by the difference of 59 points between left and right, and Australia which is 41 points away. The slightest difference was observed in South Korea, where only six points separated from left to right.
Let's Do Something
As a result of these concerns, most people feel somewhat or very reluctant to make changes in their lives that help reduce carbon emissions. In the countries of the European Union, Italy had the highest trend (93%) and the lowest level ever was 69%, which was observed in the Netherlands. The United States, Canada and most of the Pacific countries were excluded, with only 55 percent willing to make any changes. As in the past, younger age groups tend to change, as did people with higher educational levels.
It should be noted that in many countries, more people were willing to make a difference. The fact that they felt they might be personally affected shows that a degree of altruism was involved. The percentage felt doing well ( ) and the UN (56%). However, the majority of those surveyed felt the US was not applying pressure (61% rated their performance poorly) and only 18% said China was doing well. The American public received the highest rating for its performance, but even those living underwater showed only 47% that the United States was doing well in responding to climate change.Advertising Many people are convinced that their country is doing a good job in this area . weather changes.
As the graph here shows, most countries had a mixed and relatively realistic view of how their country should deal with climate change. In general, conservatives were more likely to say that their country was doing well, and that the gap between conservatives and liberals was widening again in the United States and Australia.
While many people were convinced that the international community was doing well, most people weren't sure they could do enough. Four countries - South Korea, Singapore, Germany and the Netherlands - less than half of those surveyed questioned our collective ability to control things. In every other country, that number was half or more. Finally, people were asked whether or not tackling climate change would be a net economic gain. In general, the plurality was due to climate change being neutral, and those who thought it was an advantage for those who expected economic damage. The answers were complicated here. France had the lowest expectations for benefits but closed in the middle in terms of forecasting damage. Meanwhile, the United States expected the most damage, but was in the middle of the group in terms of the size of the population expecting economic benefits.
A growing number of current studies show that if we can still hope to reduce atmospheric carbon levels below 2°C, we must make rapid progress over the next two decades. The results of this survey show that people are willing to support this challenge, as the younger generations are more inclined than the older generations. But this setup is not standardized, and there is some political polarization that could make it difficult in countries like the United States and Australia.
Once again, the survey was conducted before a number of significant weather events occurred, some of which are directly related to climate change. It is possible - although unfortunately not guaranteed - that more people will be directly affected by climate change, in fact increasing their sense of danger.
