VC501 – Design Manifesto: Consumption Causes Climate Change

The following text is written based on information from a survey conducted by Canadian nationals in 2010, conducted by Environics Research, on whether they think consumption causes climate change.

A majority of Canadians believe consumption causes climate change, and a push for economic growth is a factor for climate change. The survey found that 80 percent of those questioned feel the climate is being negatively influenced by economic and social priorities. The survey also indicated 77% of Canadians believe a tribunal should be established to penalize countries whose economic actions damage or threaten the environment.
