How will Africa be effected differently than the US if a UN climate bill is passed?

    The UN doesn’t pass bills per se. It is, however, a useful forum for international agreements. The US emits close to a quarter of worldwide carbon emissions, far outstripping any other nation in terms of energy used per capita. Africa, on the other hand, emits less than 4% of global emissions. Any agreement is likely to require a massive reduction in carbon emissions from the US, and very low, if any, commitment from any country in Africa. At this point, most people consider bringing up the African standard of living more important than reducing their emissions.
