Week 3 Discussion 3.1

Week 3 Discussion, (due Wednesday)

Some people in China point out that the United States and European nations fueled their economic growth during the industrial revolution by burning coal, with little effort to control the resulting air pollution, and then sought cleaner energy sources later when they became more affluent. China says it is being asked to clean up before it becomes affluent enough to do this, without greatly slowing its economic growth. How would you deal with this dilemma? Since China- outdoor air pollution has implications for the entire world, what role, if any, should the developed nations play in helping it to reduce its dependence on coal and to rely on more environmentally sustainable energy sources?
This an Environmental Science discussion question.
