1. Generation X: They’re the Americans who “grew up with MTV, Nirvana, and the dot-com bubble,” says The Atlantic. These individuals are better educated than their parents and work longer hours. They sit on their children’s school boards and are often active in their communities. "But, when it comes to climate change, Gen Xers voice a resounding ‘meh.’"

    In a recent survey, just 16 percent of polled Gen Xers said they followed the issue of climate change “very” or “moderately closely,” which is a 22 percent drop from 2009. People who said they did “not closely” follow the issue in 2009 were at 45 percent; in the most recent results that percentage climbed to 51 percent. So not only do fewer Gen Xers pay attention to climate change, but more and more are completely indifferent to the issue.

    Why doesn’t Generation X care about climate change?
