you know, there is a neo-con theory that goes something like this: the industrialised world has suffered the full brunt of polluting-industries. so we should now export all polluting industries to the 3rd world, since they haven't had "their share" of the pollution.

(but what about the fact that pollution effects everybody - that it is a global problem - and that the 3rd world hasn't received much benefit at all from all this "development"?)

shhh.... that's terrorist speech! :sad:

source?


the major disagreement in kyoto and the reason the u.s. cited in not signing it was that the 3rd world wanted to pollute, and said the 1st world already got to pollute.

A quotation from Lawrence Summers, who was the World Bank's Chief Economist and was responsible for the 1992 World Development Report -"I've always thought underpopulated countries in Africa are vastly under-polluted; their air quality is probably vastly inefficiently low compared to Los Angeles or Mexico City."
