A survey conducted by the Australia Institute has revealed that women, not men, are more active in fighting climate change. And the fairer sex also plans to do more for the environment in the future.
The online poll of 1000 people found that the most popular climate-friendly actions were installing energy-efficient light globes, spending less time in the shower and turning off appliances at the switch, reports The Daily Telegraph.
It also found that about 80 per cent believed climate change was occurring and Australia needed to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
The survey results, based on questions asked in January, are contained in the institute's paper Zero-sum game?, by Josh Fear and Richard Denniss.
