FEW HOPEFUL ON ENVIRONMENTAL BEHAVIOR

When it comes to the environment, few Americans believe their neighbors are willing to change their behavior to protect it, according to a survey.

The poll, commissioned by the World Wildlife Fund, showed that fewer than one in four believed other people would change their lifestyle to help the environment, despite a majority who said such changes could have a dramatic impact.

Nearly 80 percent of the 1,017 people randomly surveyed by International Communication Research, an independent pollster, said the environment could be improved if everyone made "a few small changes" in their lifestyle.

However, only 23 percent were confident people would make the needed changes.
