(CNSNews.com) -- On April 22, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Gallup released data from a survey showing that in 2019, nearly two-thirds (63%) of the adults in 145 countries "said they were satisfied with their country's efforts to preserve the environment."
However, some of the responses "ranged widely from a low of 10% in Lebanon to a high of 93% in the United Arab Emirates," said the survey firm.
Gallup asked its questions by telephone and in-person to approximately 1,000 adults each in 145 countries and areas, aged 15 and older, in 2019 and 2020.
Gallup asked, for instance, "In this country, are you satisfied or dissatisfied with efforts to preserve the environment?"
In Communist China, 85% said "satisfied." In Germany, 53% said satisfied; in Canada, 50%; and in the United States, 44%.
Fifty-six percent in the United States said they were "dissatisfied."
"Nearly three in four adults (73%) worldwide in 2019 said they were satisfied with the quality of water where they live, but this ranged widely from a low of 32% in Gabon to 98% in Singapore," said Gallup.
When asked if they were satisfied with the quality of water where they lived, 89% of Saudis said satisfied, 88% of German adults, and 83% of U.S. adults.
In the U.S.A., only 17% of adults said they were dissatisfied withe the quality of the water.
When it came to the quality of the air, "[m]ore than three in four (78%) worldwide in 2019 said they were satisfied with the quality of air where they live," reported the survey firm.
