Attitudes to climate change as a problem over time

More and more adults in Scotland believe that climate change is an immediate and urgent problem.

The proportion of adults who view climate change as an immediate and urgent problem has increased by one third between 2013 and 2017, from 46 per cent to 61 per cent. The 2017 figure also exceeds the comparable SEABS (2008) figure of 57 per cent, for the first time since this question was included in the SHS.

There have been corresponding decreases over time in the proportions of people who believe climate change is more of a problem for the future; or who are not convinced that climate change is happening.
