The survey respondents (the PDF report mentions 4,000 respondents in 38 countries “chosen to reflect … demographic diversity”) were gathered together in a series of daylong meetings Sept. 26, 2009. One can assume that because of their participation in the meetings, they were already aware of the Copenhagen talks. As indicated in the article above, Americans are taking an increasingly dim view of the importance of climate change.
