The climate emergency is considered equally important for people living in municipalities of different sizes, according to the latest study on polarization and attitudes published by the Center for Economic Policy EsadeEcPol. The survey data shows that the size of the municipality where one lives does not have a relevant effect on attitudes and values regarding climate change.
However, divisions emerge when it comes to concrete policies to curb the situation. The area of transport is the one that opens the widest gap between the two: in smaller municipalities the probability of being against banning diesel cars from 2025 is 55%, while in more populated areas it is fifteen points less, according to the report.
On the other hand, if the nuances dealt with are closer, for example in terms of agricultural and livestock farms, the polarization between more populated and less populated municipalities does not increase considerably.
