It’s promising to see majority in developing countries support their governments to fight climate change even if they know that means economic cost to them. The survey undoubtedly reflects that most people have a strong awareness in environmental protection. They don’t focus on short-term economic development, but on long-term benefit. But things become much more complicated when it comes to policy-makers. Some developing countries feel incapable to sharply cut greenhouse-gas emission at the expense of economic growth. However, reports estimate that some developing countries like Brazil will suffer great economic loss due to climate change.It seems wise to spend money to slow the climate change sooner than later. Otherwise, they would spend more in the future. Therefore, governments in developing countries have to find a balance between economic development and environmental protection.
