Nearly one in two voters believes there is no proof that mankind is causing global warming, according to a new opinion poll.
The ICM survey for The Sunday Telegraph will dismay proponents of “man-made” climate change – including leading scientists and the majority of world governments – as they gather in Copenhagen for the landmark climate summit.
Asked if they backed the main conclusion of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that humans are largely responsible for modern day rises in temperatures, 52 per cent of voters agreed.
However, 39 per cent said climate change had not yet been proven to be man made, while seven per cent simply denied the phenomenon was happening at all. Furthermore, fewer than one in four voters (23 per cent) believed that climate change was “the most serious problem faced by man” – a view endorsed by governments across the world.
