A global poll suggests despite the current pandemic and economic crisis, there is growing concern worldwide about climate change, particularly in large emitting countries like the U.S., China, and India.
The BBC's environment correspondent Matt McGrath reports.
GlobeScan conducted online polling in June with 1,000 adults in each of the 27 countries surveyed.
Around 90 percent of those polled saw climate change as a very serious or somewhat serious problem.
In the U.S., popular concern over the issue has grown significantly over the past six years and stands at 81 percent of those polled despite President Trump's well-known climate skepticism.
In South Korea, 96 percent of those polled said climate change is a very or somewhat serious issue, and one in three said they felt greatly personally impacted.
