 ES&T 11/97 Nations Seek "Fair Greenhouse Gas Treaty in Kyoto
In addition to admitting that most of the greenhouse gases have been generated by sources in industrialized nations, participants at the Rio convention realized that the increase in fossil fuel use in developing nations is tied to fulfilling basic human needs, said Reid.
"In developing nations, they are saying, 'We didn't create the problem, and if those nations that did don't take steps to reduce their emissions, then we aren't going to play.' That is the level of debate that is going on there," said Reid.
The leaders of developing nations, including coal-rich China and Korea as well as Brazil, India, and Mexico, argue that the first step toward controlling emissions globally should be made by those nations that have created the problem.

 The Globalist Global Economy -- The Return of the “Giant Sucking Sound”?
The bottom line is this: Contrary to the warnings of Ross Perot, we should not think of the developing nations as simply sources of global supply while failing to recognize their potential role as a source of global demand.
The developing nations shifted from being a source of global supply — that is, net exporters — in the 1980s to a source of global demand — that is, net importers — in the 1990s.
Indeed, soaring import demand from the developing nations was key to softening the blow of recession in both the United States and Europe in the early 1990s.

 [SafeClimate] Library Government and Policy A History of Climate Change Negotiations
Nevertheless, these steps forward were opposed by some powerful members of the developing country bloc, which consider it the moral duty of industrialized nations to begin by reducing their emissions at home rather than engaging in international emissions trading and pushing for limits on developing countries.
Within the G77 group, which includes the developing nations, the Latin American countries seemed to realize that agreeing to emissions limitations may work to their advantage, by bringing in additional revenue and increased investment to their economies as an active market in emissions trading is established.
At COP-1 in Berlin, Germany, in March 1995, the participating nations issued the so-called Berlin Mandate, which acknowledged that the voluntary approach had failed and agreed that there would have to be binding commitments by the industrialized countries to reduce their emissions of heat-trapping gases sometime after the year 2000.

 Meet Maurice Strong
Earth Summit I, in Stockholm in 1972, not for his demonstrated interest in the environment, but because the Swedish representative to the U.N. believed that only Strong, with his extensive worldwide network of friends, could get both the developed and developing nations to participate.
Strong's appointment as Senior Advisor, "to assist planning and executing a far-reaching reform of the world body," is seen by U.N. watchers to be a masterful strategic maneuver to avoid political opposition while empowering Strong to implement a global agenda he has been developing for years.
Strong has served, or is currently on the Board of Directors of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN); the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF); and the World Resources Institute (WRI); the three international NGOs that have developed and advanced the global agenda since the early 1970s.
