Surveys show Aussies want climate change action

The vast majority of Australians want to tackle global warming, reports a survey by ABC News Online , 14/3/07. 

An international poll conducted by the Lowy institute has found that 92 per cent of Australians "favour measures to combat global warming".

The poll surveyed almost 20,000 people in 17 countries, including the United States, Russia, South Korea and Indonesia.

While there was general agreement in 12 countries that "climate change was real", there were differences on how much should be spent to address it.

Almost 70 per cent of Australians believed that it was a "pressing problem" that needs to be addressed "even if it involved significant costs".
