Two-Thirds Of Britons Say Tackling Covid-19 Is More Important Than Climate Change, New Poll Reveals

A new YouGov poll carried out by Sky News reveals a growing trend among Britons since the start of the Covid-19 crisis to downgrade their concern about global warming.

In May, the GWPF published a poll carried out by YouGov which showed a massive swing in public opinion since 12March, when the public were first asked: ‘Regarding the overall impact on humanity, are you more concerned about the impact of coronavirus or climate change?’ At the time, 54% said ‘coronavirus’, up from 32% in March. Only 30% said ‘climate change’, down from 45%. 

Yesterday, Sky News published its latest poll on this question, showing a further shift in the key concern among Britons.

Two-thirds of Britons believe tackling coronavirus is more important than addressing climate change, according to a poll exclusively carried out for Sky News.

The YouGov survey found 67% thought the government’s priority should be coronavirus, compared to 15% that said the climate.

The rest said that neither were a priority or they were not sure.

Sky News is examining how Britain can reach the legally binding target of reducing its emissions to net zero by 2050 and how the economic recovery from COVID-19 can help tackle [global warming].

But our findings show just over a third of people have little faith in leaders across all the political spectrum, not just in Boris Johnson whose mantra has been to build back better and build back green.

Don`t worry there is no significant man- made global warming. The global warming scare is not driven by science but driven by politics. Al Gore and the UN are dead wrong on climate fears. The IPCC process is a perversion of science.
