Two thirds of Britons believe Climate Change as serious as Coronavirus

Updated: May 21

So says new research from Ipsos Mori.


I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Particularly as we're a long way down the pecking order, with only 3 of the world's worst polluters below us.


But as we're knee deep in Covid and climate change is still an 'invisible' future threat for many, I'll be 'glass half full', go with good and hope for the best. Because bad as Covid-19 has been, the impact of climate change is already much, much worse. Even today C19 deaths globally are a fraction of those related to climate change through pollution, drought, heatwaves, rising sea levels, declining biodiversity, disease and more, particularly in developing nations. And climate change is only going to get worse still. Maybe having seen what action can achieve over recent months, governments will finally do something before everything tips irrevocably over the edge.


'Yeah right' he said pessimistically.
