    4. How is that money going to be managed?
  • 8. Moves of US, China and India

    • 11. And there are 300 million people living in abject poverty.
    Rich countries have been responsible for more than 70% of the emissions between 1850 and 2000. India’s contribution to emissions during these same years was a paltry 2%.
    Canada, US, Europe, and Japan together account for more than 50% of the current emissions and India only 4.4%.
