The ongoing debate on climate change has been overshadowed as of late by the global pandemic and its resulting worldwide economic recessions. Yet it also comes back to a conversation about the consumption of energy as it remains an essential source of economic growth and development. Some countries have set goals to consume energy in a more responsible way, but for others the question of responsibility and taking charge is a disputed issue. Low-emission driven energy consumption can be viewed as a privilege achievable mostly by the rich developed countries and something developing countries cannot afford at their current development phase. In any case, generating success in climate change mitigation policies such as cutting CO2 emissions requires a collective effort from many major countries around the world.
