Developing countries and global warming

Posted by karmalily on October 2, 2007

Most developed countries are trying to curb their contribution to global warming, but I feel like some developing nations are being left out. The problem is that developing countries usually want to increase their production quickly and cheaply, which leads them to pollution-causing facilities – such as coal plants. However, wouldn’t it be a better idea to start off with clean energy rather than just converting to it later. It might cost more up-front, but quality of life and long term financial benefits would make up for it.

Most people would argue that it would be nearly impossible to convince poor countries to put up so much money, but what if the UN or some other institution stepped in to loan those nations the money and supplies to install clean energy? What do you think?
