Should developing countries be made equally responsible for climate change?

Yes, because stopping climate change is a common responsibility.

Yes, because some of them have fast-growing economies and are currently major contributors to climate change.

No, because they need to catch up and equal responsibility could hinder their economic development.
3% (1 vote)
No, because they have industrialised later and historically contributed less to climate change.

I believe that all the countries should be part of this action about the climate change. Starting from the fact that is an point of the UN Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 which involves all the states, also is an global problem that affects all the stated. The climate change should be not only an action of doing something to repair the damages that the world/nature suffer, it should be an action of prevention which does not cost something... it is all about education and educated populations ( throwing the garbage in the special containers, buying the needs not everything that we see and after we do not use, encouraging the quality not the amount of products = education) . I think that the climate change it should be a problem for the citizens in general not only when we talk about states or developing states.. yes, it is true that now we need to ”clean” some parts of the earth and the money that the countries contributes to the project it is different because there are richer and poorest countries but in the ensemble is an problem that should be an target for all of us. I believe that the equality in this project should start from the level of support, one for the others. But all in all, I believe that is an problem which should be managed with more responsibility and to be solved not as an equal approach compared to the implication of the other, it should be an approach of involving totally to be an example for others.

All countries must be responsible for global climate change. However, those countries that have "ruined" the climate more during their lifetime have to pay more. Only joint hard real actions of all the participating countries can make the situation better.

We live in a common area for all - planet Earth. Therefore, everyone should be responsible for our future, the future of our planet. In this regard, I believe beyond doubt that all countries, regardless of their level of economic development, must be responsible for climate changes. However, in my opinion, the answer to the question of the level of such responsibility is not straightforward. Responsibility requires governments to invest resources in appropriate environmental measures. On the one hand, highly developed countries, unlike developing countries, today have more opportunities to use expensive environmentally responsible technologies. On the other hand, these highly developed countries site the most environmentally harmful production in the developing countries, more (than at home) neglecting environmental measures. In addition, the quantitative scales of national economies in developing countries are much smaller than in highly developed countries (USA’s GDP together with China's GDP make up about half of world GDP). Therefore, in my opinion, the level of responsibility of countries for climate change is different.

In my opinion, the global nature of climate change is needed the widest possible cooperation of all countries and their participation in activities for an effective and appropriate international response in accordance with their shared but differentiated responsibilities and real opportunities, as well as their social and economic conditions.

Climate changing is not a human problem(at this time we can't control the earth axis or the evolution of the sun). Pollution is a problem because affect human health. Living in a world full of plastic or other wastes is also a problem for living species. All governments must impose rules about pollution and waste management. I see some thoughts about education...All over the world rules and fines offer results and after that education. Pollution has no borders. Education needs time. So we need international rules not only for different types of countries. Having these rules can offer us a better life only. Climate change is impossible to control(note to Greta).

For me All countries must be responsible for global climate change but The ranking of countries that emit the most carbon dioxide places China first, followed by Saudi Arabia, Iran and Russia. Doha is thus the biggest polluter in the world, with 53.4 tonnes of CO2 per person, three times more than an American (17.5 t), ten times more than a Chinese (5.2 t) and 36 times more than an Indian (1.4 t).

I believe that all countries should bear the same responsibility for pollution, warming and climate change. In just a few days of the new year, many warming disasters have already occurred in the world. Warming can be seen by anyone in the area where one lives, it is discussed in media and by politicians. I think that developing countries should not get higher greenhouse gas emission quotas, just because they started their development a little later. We do not have time to wait for a certain level of economic development in those countries. And speaking specifically about China, I think it has a chance to become a leader in introducing alternative eco-friendly energy sources, unlike the US, (whose position I don't understand, is it at Trump's behest?), but as said in the video above, pollution in one country is sure to extend to the rest of the world. China needs to seriously rethink its energy policy and find new energy sources, since coal reserves or other combustible hydrocarbons are in any case limited and will only last for decades to run out. In the end, everyone has to contribute to the future of the planet, and use the three R rule (reduce, reuse, recycle), because this is our common home. Better is to addressmoney which is spent on Mars exploration to the problems of our planet, because to destroy the Earth and escape to another planet, unfortunately it will not work.

Considering that it is an objective of the UN Agenda for Sustainable Development 2030, I believe that all the states of the world are responsible for what is happening in the world: pollution, warming, climate change. Also, this problem of the world should be analyzed by both rich and poor countries.

Țările în curs de dezvoltare sunt cu atât mai mult responsabile de efectele schimbărilor climatice deoarece acestea emit mai mult de 50% din gazele cu efecte de seră într-o perioadă de un an (conform World Resources Institute). Pentru a ajunge la cerințele impuse de tratatul de la Paris, aceste țări au nevoie de o alternativă pentru a se dezvolta economic fără a dăuna mediului. În trecut, pentru a se dezvolta, țările foloseau tehnologii cu emisii de CO2 ridicate deoarece nu existau alte soluții; însă, acum, țările care se află în curs de dezvoltare au avantajul că avansurile tehnologice le permit să evolueze fără a polua atât de mediul cum s-a întâmplat în trecut. Diferența este doar în capital. Pentru a se dezvolta, acestea aleg să folosească tehnologii mai ieftine și mai poluante pentru a ajunge din urmă țările mult mai dezvoltate și mai bogate, fără a lua în considerare efectele acțiunilor lor.
