That less than 20% number doesn't mean only 20% of people care about the environment. That means only 20% have bought into the man made global warming mass hysteria.
Around 2/3 of people think climate change, both natural and man made is an important issue. I agree climate change could easily kill off 95% of the population. The last ice age may have killed off up to 99% of humans.
Just in recorded history climate change has caused wars, famine, mass migration. Climate change could have created the concept of warfare it's self.

The total irradiance of the sun has increased 0.1% to 0.05% from maunder minimum to present.
So we are talking the difference of around 1 watt per square meter.
