    Interesting, especially when you get to the authoritarian bit.

    Rather ironic the patches of purple around the Wash and Severn estuaries given sea level rise!

    So Northern England either 'Don't Know' or don't care?

    Mind you the people in London probably think Northern England is some sort of buffer zone where no one lives!!

    To a large extant it looks like a map of where people have enough money to care about other things.

    I don't think we can do ANYTHING that will effect see levels in my lifetime, as if even each household in the 3rd world gets a fridge, the CO2 levels will go right up.

    Yes, there has been research to confirm this. Not going to work in an unequal world though.

    Looks the opposite to me. For example around here Bristol is shown as most in favour, Bath slightly less and the rural and generally most affluent surroundings least of all. The area around Swanage even less.

    Research has shown that opposition to climate science and efforts to prevent climate change are strongly linked to ideology with those generally opposed to government intervention taking that as their starting point and from that rejecting the science etc rather than modifying their ideology to accommodate reality. Think the Heartland Institute and Tea Partiers in America and UKIP with their Lord Monckton here. It's generally a more affluent, older demographic.

    It's quite fun filling in the political questionnaire and coming up with an answer as to which party your views are most closely aligned to.:wink::bigsmile:

    I may have misunderstood Ringi's reply.
    Wealthy people of working age tend to like the green thing, but don't actually do anything about it.
    The research I referred to is about wealthier communities liking to protect the environment. There is also the affects of local education, Bristol has a lot of that, as does Penwith. So does Scotland and Wales. Then are are local ecological issues, such as GM crop trials that sway people's views (not that we have had any for a while).

    If you zoom in at least the people in and around Boston and along the North shore of the Wash are a "green" zone.
