Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit Climate Change Survey

Survey of British adults on behalf of ECIU on climate change.

  • The majority of British adults (64%) recognise that climate change is happening, and that it is primarily due to human activity. This view has steadily become more prevalent since 2014 (57%) and 2015 (59%).
  • Almost seven in ten (69%) think that at least a majority of scientists believe climate change is primarily caused by human activities.
  • When it comes to effects of climate change, harm to wildlife and nature (80%) and an increase in flooding (73%) are key concerns for the majority of the population.
