Three quarter of UK’s population will ‘back climate law’: Survey reveals

greenhouse gas emission from factory

UK is planning to introduce a new law aimed at combating climate change. And amazingly three quarters of UK’s population would support it, Friends of the Earth‘s survey reveals.

Friends of the Earth surveyed some 1,233 people to make this study. They were asked if they would back a law that requires an annual reduction of emissions in UK CO2. The statistics go like this:

75% said they would,
5% said they would not,
19% of respondents said they don’t know.

So, with this survey result, UK can now go optimistic with its effort to meet its target of reducing CO2 emissions by 20% by 2010. The new and existing policies will deliver a cut of 15-18% by the end of the decade, the Climate Change Programme review projects.
