Two-thirds of Britons agree planet is in a climate emergency

Our research has helped Greenpeace launch their Climate Manifesto to slash emissions, in the midst of the Extinction Rebellion protests last month. The manifesto lists 134 key actions they say the government should take immediately to ensure the UK hits zero carbon emissions as soon as possible.

To support this, our research has found:

  • 63% of British public think they are in a climate emergency
  • 76% say they would vote differently to protect the planet and climate
  • 64% say government is responsible for taking action on climate change

Amid this, the UK experienced the biggest civil disobedience protests for generations as Extinction Rebellion activists blocked roads, bridges and transport systems in London to highlight the escalating climate crisis. Millions of schoolchildren around the world have also taken to the streets to voice their growing alarm.
