Innovation, Energy and Climate Change in the Developing World

Humanity has never faced a problem like this before: a problem with no boundaries, caused by the very dynamics that have led to economic growth and human betterment. So it’s little wonder that as States deliberate the question of responsibility it is clear the divide between the developed world and the rest remains keenly felt. Who should take the lead? Why should responses be equal when little else is? From China and India to South Africa or Tuvalu, one country’s ‘innovation’ might just be the next’s undoing.
