Eco consumerism

The evidence of environmental change and damage is becoming overwhelming. From melting glaciers, to extreme weather events such as flooding and drought, many consumers feel threatened by these developments.

Greenhouse gas emissions vary significantly between countries and provide an indicator of how seriously different countries perceive the problem.  

For example, using 1990 as the base year, emissions have doubled in Turkey but halved in the Baltic States. People perceive this as a man-made problem, particularly caused by “big business”.
