MTF cited in AP story on young adults' concerns about environmental issues

a PSC In The News reference, 2012

"Study: Young people not so 'green' after all" - Associated Press. 03/15/2012.

The analysis described in this AP story looked at trends in young adults' concerns about environmental issues. The researchers say that, despite their reputation to the contrary, Millennials are less concerned than either Gen Xers or baby boomers. Analyses used data from Monitoring the Future (1976-2008), and another long-term survey of the nation's youth.
