Europeans Tend to Care More Strongly about Climate Change Than Americans
[Only 27% of the sampled Americans saw climate change as a "large threat"; only 21% of Americans say they are willing to pay more taxes to cut greenhouse gas emissions; only 20% of Americans supported additional aid to developing countries to help them deal with climate change; only 10% of Americans avoided patronising a business because of their environmental activities (or lack thereof)]
These are some of the findings of a Financial Times/Harris Poll conducted online by Harris Interactive® among 6,463 adults aged less than 65 in France, Germany, Britain, Spain, Italy and the United States between September 30 and October 7, 2009.
[Poll details here. The US sample was people aged 16-64. Why was that age range chosen?]
