According to a WIN World Survey, 86% respondents over the world agree that climate change leads to global warming.
A sample of 29,368 men and women from 40 countries across the globe was asked, “To what extent do you agree or disagree that climate change leads to global warming?” 86% of the respondents say they somewhat or totally agree with the statement, while only 10% said they somewhat or totally disagree. 4% of the respondents didn’t know or did not respond. In contrast, 75% respondents from Pakistan agree, and 21% disagree.

People with higher level of education believe that is a climate change that leads to global warming. 87% of the students agree with the statement, being the most aware group of this problem.
