Research from Griffith University show the vast majority of Australian’s accept the science:
AUSTRALIANS accept human impact on climate change and are taking action to reduce it, according to new research.
A research project by Griffith University and Cardiff University in Wales surveyed 7500 Australians and 1800 Britons and found 90% of Australian and 89% of British respondents accepted that humans are part of the cause of climate change.
There were striking similarities overall, but Australian respondents viewed climate change as a more “immediate, proximal (that is it is near), and certain threat” compared to British respondents who were beginning to adapt to it through changes in their thinking, feelings and behaviours.
And 71% of Australians reported increased awareness, media coverage, perceived lack of government action and increasing frequency of natural disasters and extreme weather events.
Only 6.5% doubted humans’ role in climate change.
