New Ipsos MORI research sheds light on the public’s attitudes towards the Paris climate change conference and what action should be taken. This slide pack explores public attitudes towards:
- Whether the UK government should sign up to a legally binding agreement to combat climate change at COP21
- Climate change as a spending priority for the UK government, the trade off with other priorities such as education and healthcare and who has responsibility for taking action
- Support for Government action on climate change dependent on its implications for economic growth
- Investment in helping developing countries respond to climate change vs. a domestic focus or not at all
- Concern about climate change, its causes and the evidence base, including how we compare to other nations around the world
This research brings the public voice into the debate at a time when nations from across the world are meeting in Paris to agree how collective action can be taken to combat climate change, and shows whether there is a mandate for action.
The research has been collected from different research projects, and consists of data collected from various methodologies. Fieldwork dates and methodology is shown on each slide.
