Today’s frontpages of most UK newspapers ignore the new IPCC report, reflecting the declining concern of most Brits about the climate agenda – despite the habitual alarm, says The Global Warming Policy Forum (GWPF).
UK Survey: Brits Are Chilled About Global Warming
Press Release, Global Warming Policy Forum, 11 July 2018
Few Britons have major concerns over climate change
The latest British Social Attitudes Survey reveals that only around a quarter of the public has major concerns over the impacts of global warming and that only a third thinks that humans are the main cause of climate change.
The typical Briton is mildly concerned by climate change, but believes that human and natural causes are equally important in understanding why the climate changes.
This is in sharp contrast to green campaigners, politicians and the broad “climate science” community, whose message of impending disaster is dominating the mainstream media.
Similarly, the survey shows that few people feel they should limit their energy use in order to address global warming, with young Britons least likely to indicate a willingness to change.
