Tracker data: Public and MPs believe in the effectiveness of working together to tackle climate crisis

15 November 2023

Climate Barometer tracker data from shows that the majority of the public (70%) and MPs (76%) agree “we can succeed in reducing the negative impacts of climate change by working together and acting collectively”. While not policy specific, this sentiment shows that both the public and MPs highly value the principle of cooperating together to tackle the climate crisis, with clear relevance to the aims and process of international negotiations.

Tracker data: Nearly half of British public support climate compensation

According to our Climate Barometer Tracker, 48% of the public agree with the idea that “wealthy countries, with a history of high greenhouse gas emissions, should provide compensation to poorer countries for damages caused by the climate crisis”. By breaking this down by political voting behaviour, we see that the majority of this comes from Labour voters – with 65% agreeing. Of Conservative voters, 35% agree (and roughly equal numbers disagree) with the statement.

MPs, however, show a starker contrast, with Labour MPs in majority agreement (61%) and Conservative MPs in majority disagreement (58%).
