From the concept of environmental preoccupation understood like the perception of the consequences of an ecological problem based on its degree of proximity or distance, It carried out a study with 300 inhabitants of the Iztapalapa delegation in the City of Mexico. It settled down so much the trustworthiness as the validity of the instrument that measured hypermetric environmental. Significant differences between men and women settled down when the hydrologic problem was perceived as distant (at world-wide level there is a water shortage) and little probable to affect the consumption of the surveyed people. Nevertheless, when the problematic one was perceived as near (in my house the water is little) the differences between men and women disappeared.
