According to a WIN World Survey, 46% respondents over the world agree that it is already too late to curtail climate change.

A sample of 29,368 men and women from 40 countries across the globe was asked, “To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following statement: It is already too late to curtail climate change.” 46% of the respondents in the participating countries say they somewhat or totally agree with the statement, while 48% said they somewhat or totally disagree. 6% of the respondents did not know or did not respond.

In comparison, 63% of Pakistanis agreed with the statement, and 33% disagreed.

Whereas respondents from the Americas are least likely to agree with the statement.
