The threat posed by climate change: among over-40-year-olds, parents worry just as much as non-parents

Future generations will suffer increasingly more from the consequences of climate change than we do today. Presumably older people with children will be more worried about climate change than those of the same age without children, as they will also factor the remaining lifetime of their offspring into their assessment. Yet, this is not the case, as shown by a recent study by the German Centre of Gerontology.
