BBC World unveils climate change survey results
 
London (2008-03-24)

ASIANS, particularly Koreans, Chinese and Singaporeans, remain uninformed about the dangers of climate change. More than 40 per cent of Indians think India is the most responsible for the change, while the Japanese are most worried about flooding and erratic weather.

These are some of the key findings of a global opinion survey conducted by Synovate and BBC World. It was carried out in 21 countries on six continents in February last year.

Synovate global head of media research, Mr Steve Garton, said: "The survey shows some strikingly common views, but also illustrates how the climate issues facing specific countries influence their views about how they can tackle the problem. There does appear to be a need for better education about the matter across all markets."
