A survey has found that 31 per cent of South Africans livings in cities are in denial regarding climate change and say they don’t believe it will affect their lives very much.
But a bigger group, forty-nine per cent of those surveyed, does believe it will affect their lives.
The three week climate change conference or COP17 kicks off in Durban on Monday. Neil Higgs of the research company TNS says many South Africans are not interested in the message of climate change as a disaster.
