Argentina is one of the most geographically diverse and rich countries in the world. However, its landscape is not impervious to the effects of climate change, and the impacts are already being felt. Argentina also faces many socioeconomic issues that demand the immediate attention of the citizens and the government. In a country struggling with economic instability and poverty, does the population care about climate change and environmental issues? Based on personal accounts, I have determined that the public perception of climate change in Argentina is overwhelmingly ambivalent, and the country has a long way to go before it will be able to properly address climate change. While in developed countries like the United States we see climate change as an urgent issue that needs immediate attention, other countries do not have the economic stability necessary to turn their attention to climate change. Therefore, it may be necessary for countries such as Argentina to focus on their own growth and development before they have the luxury of addressing climate change.
