Abstract

The electoral success of the Green Party in 1989 suggested substantial support for pro-environment policies within the British population. Ecological analysis of that electoral performance suggests that Green support was greatest among the affluent middle class in the south of England. Analysis of 1987 electoral survey data, however, indicates not one but three separate dimensions to environmental concern within the country, with clear implications for mobilisation of the pro-Green electorate.
