A major global survey has revealed that US is hotbed for climate change denial.

We are not alone in this denial. Saudi Arabia and Indonesia are the only two countries in big names that have higher proportion of doubters of climate change.

Majority of the Americans don’t believe that human-driven climate change is occurring in the world.

YouGov-Cambridge Globalism Project has conducted a 23-country survey.

In that survey, 13% of Americans surveyed agreed that climate is getting worse but that change has nothing to do with human activities.

5 % of the people said that climate change is not happening at all.

Saudi Arabia and Indonesia joins the Americans and have higher doubters than them.

Saudi Arabia had 16 % doubters of manmade climate change while the ratio for Indonesia is 18 %.

13% of Americans also said that they are not aware whether the climate is changing itself or whether humans have played a part in it.

40 % of Americans believe that human activities kind of play a part in the climate change while a third of people said that human activities is the main cause for the changing climate.

The body that comprises of world’s leading climate scientists, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said last October that the window of opportunity has been limited to just 12 years.

Many young activists and organizations are protesting for taking steps to help the climate. The most notable people are Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg and Extinction Rebellion group.

In U.S.A., the political landscape is changing through the Green New Deal which is orchestrated by Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

This week a global assessment report has been released by UN which states that about a million species are at a risk of extinction.
