    Climate Change And The Effort Against It Go On Climate Change Scorecard

    Lulu Garcia-Navarro, July 8, 2018 (National Public Radio)

    “Record heat all over the planet, fires, rising sea levels, flooding neighborhoods and cities - manmade climate change is being felt in all sorts of ways…[After the U.S.announced its intention to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, there were predictions that the other countries would follow, but it is] a pretty mixed picture…[India is making] rapid progress…[and] will be achieving their goals on renewable energy well ahead of schedule. China's emissions had been more or less stabilizing…[ Even the U.S.has had] reductions in emissions, despite the Trump rollbacks, thanks to stronger efforts by cities and states and many companies…[But] in each of those cases there are warning signs.

Hipsters (72%) are more likely than Hippies (60%) to agree/strongly agree that “Global warming, or climate change, is occurring, and it is primarily caused by human activity”…If you’re measuring by action, [Boomers] win…[They] are doing more energy conservation in their homes. Fewer Hippies (15%) than Hipsters (27%) say they have NOT purchased any energy-conserving home products, and 13% of Hipsters have NOT taken any water conservation steps at home, compared to only 7% of Hippies…Hippies are more likely to wear their green on their sleeves…[But there] is one sustainable-minded behavior that Hipsters are more likely to say they do than Hippies: purchasing…” click here for more
