Yes I think they should. Many things that happen here, such as polluting the air, drift all over the globe. First World Countries have about 1/4 of the worlds population, at least the U.S., and consume about 50% of the worlds resources. Stats show that if every person was to live how we do in the U.S. that we would need seven Earths to support everyone's consumption. Since we are consuming the most resources, which causes environmental problems, we should be on the forefront of helping other countries, finding alternate sources of energy, etc. Most countries aspire to be like us, and what example would we be if we destroyed the environment without a care to others and future generations?
