75% Of Middle-Aged Britons Harbour Doubt About Man-Made Climate Change

Oolder men in the Midlands are the least concerned about saving the planet.

Northerners are most eco-friendly, while 60% of young people aged 16 to 34 are taking action on climate change – compared to 41% of 55 to 64-year-olds.

A poll for this week’s Climate Week also found 45% of the younger generation think climate change is man-made but only 26% of people close to retiring age agree.

And 56% of women are committed to changing their behaviour to be greener, compared to 44% of men.
