"Developing" countries cease to follow their natural inclination to be 'green.' Most societies, cultures assumed to be undeveloped are naturally 'greener' because they do not yet employ the technology that pollutes. Not all, of course, as throughout history we know there have been decisions and changes leading to, at least, health pollution.
Unfortunately, it has been the major global polluters who have been allowed to bring these ideas and the processes which turn a "under developed" country into one which is adding to the global desecration mix (and with less experience and knowledge than their 'teachers').
So, penalizing the oppressed-turned-into-oppressor is a band-aide at best, when the focus needs to be put on the "non-green providers" of contaminates , leading to what is poorly labeled - development.Connecting-to-the-Value-of-Why 2005-2008 ©
