As the world struggles to deal with the implications of global warming, developing nations find themselves faced with a paradox. Efforts to go green in emerging economies like China and India, face the daunting challenge of choosing between unbridled economic growth or creation and enforcement of clean air and water standards. Even where limits on emissions are enacted, the economic growth rate means overall emissions keep rising. Further complicating the issue is the reluctance of developed, industrialized countries, many of which have signed the Kyoto Protocol, to enact their own global warming programs.
“The industralised countries have not met the obligations they took on in the Kyoto Protocol,” said Montek Ahluwalia, Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission of India.
The United States, the single greatest producer of greenhouse gas emissions, stands as a tarnished example of a super power that has not taken a leadership position on global warming.
These issues and more are being hotly debated at the World Economic Forum.
