Children full of anxiety over environment, says international study Sep 15, 2021 0 0 12345 London The majority of young people are filled with anxiety over climate change, a study which quizzed thousands of youngsters from around the world suggests.A study based on surveys of 10,000 children and young people found more than three quarters (77 percent) thought the future was frightening and nearly six in 10 said they were very or extremely worried about climate change.More than half said they had felt afraid, sad, anxious, powerless, helpless and/or guilty, and almost half (45 percent) said their concerns negatively affected their daily life.Young people also feel governments are failing them, betraying future generations, lying about the impacts of actions taken on climate change and dismissing people’s distress about the issue, the findings suggest.Less than a third (31 percent) think governments are doing enough to avoid catastrophe, and almost two fifths (39 percent) say they are even hesitant to have children, although the figure ranges quite widely between different countries.
