Worldwide climate change poll shows rising concerns
Advertisements [?]
Nearly two-thirds of 24,071 people polled in 23 countries said climate change was a "very serious" problem - up from 44% in a GlobeScan 1998 poll.
...
The US and China buck the general trend, becoming less concerned about climate change over the past two years.
...
On average 63% of those polled said climate change was a "very serious" concern. In Brazil and Chile the figure was 86%, falling to 45% in India and the US.
...
Those in the US were above average for wanting their government to take a leadership role to address climate change as quickly as possible, but 14% wanted no international agreement - more than in any other country polled.
