What right do we have to dictate how a country uses its energy resources? Watch
It was previously not known how depleting natural resources and releasing CO2 can cause problems further down the line.
And it isnt like we're threatening to invade them or anything, we're just strongly suggesting they do whats in their long term self interest.
I was thinking about this in relation to a geography exam I have on Brazil next week but its a general question. We depleted so many of the UK's energy resources during the industrial revolution so why should we tell other countries how to manage theirs when they are developing now?
Because two wrongs don't make a right - we caused loads of environmental damage, therefore we should allow another country to cause even more, is not a logical argument
The main negative impact of using up resources like coal in the UK is that we no longer have any. Brazil has the rainforest - the impact of losing this is extreme climate change and the extinction of thousands of species
