Antarctic environmental problems: attitudes and behaviours of young inhabitants of two Argentine cities (Buenos Aires and San Carlos de Bariloche) / Enrique del Acebo Ibáñez, Mariano Costa.

Title: Antarctic environmental problems: attitudes and behaviours of young inhabitants of two Argentine cities (Buenos Aires and San Carlos de Bariloche) / Enrique del Acebo Ibáñez, Mariano Costa.
Author(s): Ibáñez, Enrique del Acebo.
Costa, Mariano.
Date: 2010.
In: Polar Record. (2010.), Vol. 46(238) (2010)
Abstract: Analyses comparative study of 15-25 age group in two cities to ascertain their representations, perceptions, attitudes and behaviours in relation to Antarctica, its environmental problems and possible solutions. Rootedness, anomie, participation and consumerism were measured as variables and related to different attitudes and behaviours. Individuals with high rootedness and low anomie tend to identify environmental problems as resulting from human action in terms of depredation and/or direct pollution, and prioritise socialisation and information processes as solutions. High levels of anomie led to greatest pessimism about future. 20-25 age group, particularly females, emphasised control and punishment in relation to environmental problems, as did individuals with low participation level. High percentage of subjects were indifferent to Antarctic issues, and Antarctica as aesthetic, poetic and utopian vision was predominant among subjects with lower levels of consumerism and anomie, and higher grades of participation. More pragmatic and conflict aimed vision of Antarctica predominated among young people with highest socio-economic level.
