Around the world, more people feel “greatly affected” by climate change than a year ago.
This sentiment has increased across all regions and is highest in Latin America, where a majority now feel greatly affected by climate change. While this is lower in North America, there is still a significant increase in the number of people who feel climate change is greatly affecting them.
This figure will likely continue to grow as temperatures rise and extreme weather events intensify, leading to increasing public pressure for strong action on climate change.
