Is it fair that some countries environmental impact is so small yet the impact on them is so great?

    It’s not necessarily that their environmental impact is so small, because poor and middle class countries account for a little over half of total carbon emissions. For example Brazil produces more CO2 per capita than Germany. Developing countries constitute about 80% of the world’s population. What’s unfair is that they are the worst victims of global warming, but they have the least amount of money and the fewest available resources to combat it. They are hit the hardest by climate change but cannot afford to make changes to cut emissions – so they are reliant on developed nations to make huge cuts to CO2 emissions in their place. This is difficult because of the imbalance in world populations between developed and developing nations.
