Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper seeks to provide a comprehensive review of the survey evidence on attitudes to the greenhouse effect around the world. In the early 1990s, a number of major comparative attitude projects were undertaken which allow us unique insights into the way different countries view global environmental problems. While most of the data is on Western Europe, we now also have substantial evidence on public opinion on the environment around the rest of the world. Much of these data have only just been released into the public domain, others have never been systematically analysed with special attention to the issue of global warming.
