Rich vs. Poor: Who Should Pay To Fix Climate Change?

In the last few centuries, a small number of countries used fossil fuels to develop their economies. The gasses emitted by these economies have resulted in climate change. Now, however, the majority of gas emissions are coming from developing countries, who are trying to use them to develop just like the rich countries before them. Who, therefore, should be responsible for taking the lead in fixing climate change?

Look out for:

  • The role richer countries have played historically in climate change
  • The role developing countries play currently in climate change
  • The debates currently taking place over who should be doing the most to combat climate change
