Climate Terminology - know what I mean Harry?

A recent report by Trajectory and Fleet Street explores adults' understanding of climate terminology such as 'green', 'sustainable', 'single use plastics' and the 'circular economy'.


Those with higher levels of education had greater confidence in their understanding of key terms. For example, “circular economy” – an economy that eliminates waste and reduces carbon emissions by reusing resources – was understood by 11% more consumers with a university degree or higher compared with those who had left school at 16. The term was understood by 30% more people still in formal education, compared with older people who had left education after secondary school, suggesting a greater understanding among students today than in previous generations.
