Opinione dei cittadini europei sui cambiamenti climatici
Un recente sondaggio sulla percezione condotto dalla European Commission, Directorate-General for Climate Action (DG CLIMA) ha fatto emergere che la metà dei Cittadini Europei (50%) crede che i cambiamenti climatici siano uno dei più seri problemi da affrontare oggi a livello globale mentre uno su sei (16%) pensa che questo sia il problema più importante (segue in inglese).
The most widespread view is that poverty, hunger and lack of drinking water is the single most serious problem facing the world, mentioned by 35% of Europeans, followed by the economic situation, mentioned by around a quarter of Europeans (24%).
It is interesting to note that, among the 28 EU member states, Italy is the country which presents the highest percentage of concern for the economic situation (47%) and the lowest percentage for poverty, hunger and lack of drinking water (21%). On the other hand the percentage of Italians (14%) that consider climate chiange as the single most serious problem that the world faces is close to the Europeans percentage value (16%).
There are three Member States where respondents are most likely to think climate change is the single most serious problem facing the world today: Sweden (39%), and Denmark and Malta (30% in each).
The country with the lowest proportion of respondents mentioning climate change as the most serious problem facing the world is Portugal (6%).
