Following the launch of our climate pledge last month, we asked you what environmental issues you think we’re covering well, and which you think demand more attention. This is what you said.
We asked Guardian readers around the world to tell us what you think of our climate coverage, and what you’d like to see more of. We received several hundred responses from readers in India, the UK, Japan, the US (everywhere from Maryland to Alaska), Mexico, Istanbul, Spain, Canada, Malaysia, Switzerland, New Zealand and Wales – to mention just a few. Here is a small sample of what we heard.
The rising human population needs to be addressed. There are too many of us; we are living longer, therefore something needs to be done to encourage smaller families, choosing to adopt, or to remain child-free. The exploding population is an ecological emergency.
