Why does the threat of climate change give some nightmares while others simply ignore it? Where do perceptions lie and how do they differ by country, age, education level, or political affiliation? This week, Switched On speaks with BloombergNEF consumer research analyst, Hugh Bromley, about several recent surveys that ask how people perceive climate change and whether they see it as a top risk.

This episode is based on a report titled What Divides and Unites on Climate Action and Awareness. BNEF clients can access this at BNEF on the Bloomberg Terminal, or on or BNEF Mobile.

Switched On is hosted this week by Dana Perkins and Mark Taylor.
