This Earth Day, Facebook is empowering people to get informed and take action on climate change. We are also marking a milestone as our global operations are now supported by 100% renewable energy.

To better understand people’s perspectives towards climate change, we ran a survey on Facebook in over 30 countries and territories, in partnership with the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. In each of the countries where we collected data, we found that more than three-quarters of people believe that climate change is happening, but fewer understand it is caused mostly by human activities. More than 6 in 10 respondents in all countries say they want more information about climate change.
