Kids’ fears for planet

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & -

BRI­TISH kids worry more about cli­mate change than drugs or booze abuse.

The Earth’s health is their third-big­gest con­cern, after be­ing bullied and the risk of an­other world war.

Fears rise as kids age, a sur­vey for en­ergy com­pany Pure Planet re­veals.

Fifty-four per cent of 14 to 17-year-olds fret over our cli­mate, com­pared to 39 per cent of five to 13-year-olds.

Lon­don chil­dren are most anx­ious about the planet, followed by those in Glas­gow and Ed­in­burgh.
