The BBC reports that most people around the world think that climate change is being caused by man and that we need to do something about it.
An average of 79% of respondents to the BBC survey agreed that “human activity, including industry and transportation, is a significant cause of climate change”.
Nine out of 10 people said action was necessary, with two-thirds of people going further, saying “it is necessary to take major steps starting very soon”.
Kind of encouraging. I guess this means that ‘global warming denial’ isn’t having as much effect as the news might suggest.
I do wonder though what is in the minds of the presumably 11% of respondents who don’t think that humans are a significant cause of climate change but do think that action is necessary.
