The Number: 74% — Chinese Very Worried About the Environment
In a recent Pew Research survey of the Chinese people, environmental issues emerge as a top problem and a top priority; about three-in-four (74%) cite air pollution as a big problem and 66% so named water pollution. In response, as many as 80% of Chinese think protecting the environment should be made a priority, even if this results in slower growth and a potential loss of jobs.
