Public attitudes to UK climate leadership – Ten years since the Climate Change Act

Sam Hall

April 2018

The aim of this new polling analysis is to better understand public attitudes to climate change, ten years since the UK’s world-leading Climate Change Act 2008 was passed, in order to assess the appropriateness of the UK’s current climate change targets and to inform future policymaking about climate change. This analysis will feed in to Bright Blue’s forthcoming research report on strengthening the Climate Change Act. Our previous research into the political attitudes of younger voters unearthed the salience of climate change relative to other issues that are commonly associated with younger voters. In particular, this research will analyse the attitudes of younger voters towards action on climate change in greater detail.
