Should first world countries be held liable for the deteriorating environment?
Many First World countries contribute so much to the deteriorating environmental conditions round the world. Should they be held liable for environment related problems in third world countries directly affected?
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?
