A new global survey illustrates the depth of anxiety many young people are feeling about climate change.
- Nearly 60% of young people approached said they felt very worried or extremely worried.
- More than 45% of those questioned said feelings about the climate affected their daily lives.
- Three-quarters of them said they thought the future was frightening. Over half (56%) say they think humanity is doomed.
- Two-thirds reported feeling sad, afraid and anxious. Many felt fear, anger, despair, grief and shame - as well as hope.
It's rational for young people to be anxious. They're not just reading about climate change in the media - they're watching it unfold in front of their own eyes.
