More than 50 per cent of voters believe rich nations should take the lead in cutting greenhouse gas emissions, a new survey has found.
The poll for the Cabinet Office surveyed 1,837 people aged 20 and over between late May and early June 1st.
A third of the respondents said industrialised nations, including Japan, should lead efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions because they pumped out more emissions per capita than developing nations.
A fifth (22 per cent) said Japan, with its high energy saving technologies, should drastically cut emissions and lead the world's efforts.
A total of 29 per cent of interviewees said all nations should cut about the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
