Fatalism is that future events are pre-determined and subject to fate, often according to "God's plan". The idea is generally considered to be incompatible with the concept of free will. Belief in fate was found to be 93% among Muslims in Africa and the Middle East, 88-91% in Asia, and 57% in south eastern Europe. 
Avoiding safety improvements
"The LORD will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life"
The belief of inevitability of death provides a rationalisation for bad driving practices. According to the belief, there is no point in taking preventative measures to reduce the risk of accidents. This belief is common in Islam.
- "The children who died in that crash would have died for some other reason anyway, because death was their fate and that was their day. Death was fated for these children who were sitting on the top of bus. This was inevitable, and the driver's mistake just becomes the source of that crash. The sitting of the children on the top of the bus also became a source of death. If they had not had to face death, they would not have sat there. It was also the driver's destiny that it was in his fate to face difficulties of life in this way. "
Deaths of pilgrims during the hajj
"As for the things that humans cannot control, you are not blamed for them. Fate and destiny are inevitable"

The belief we live in a fallen world means attempting to mitigate climate problems is against God's plan. In Christian eschatology, the Earth is devastated and then restored by God; attempts to influence or resist these prophesied events are contrary to God's plan. 
Since these events are supposedly certain to happen, it is pointless attempting to try to mitigate climate change.
The poor will always be with you
The Bible records Jesus saying:
The New Testament says that political leaders are appointed by God and should not be rebelled against (even if they are evil) Romans 13:1-2 . This attitude discourages improvements to a country's political system.
Fatalism does not provide any testable predictions and is therefore unfalsifiable. Fatalism may be true or not but either way it does not directly impact reality as we perceive it and is largely moot.
The belief ignores the possibility that safety measures can be put into place that reduce or eliminate accidents or reduce the harm that results.
