A statement on our 2013 Unit 8 Mock Exam: “People must use scarce natural resources for the world to improve.” Do you agree or disagree?
Well right now in Paris some countries are blocking the climate change talks because they want to protect their place as leaders in the global oil trade. Saudi Arabia is one country which is being accused of blocking changes such as aiming for the more ambitious target of only causing +1.5C in global warming rather than the current +2C change. They’ve also objected to other plans which they say are too harsh and will stop the development of LEDC’s.
I do believe we talked about this very point this afternoon in Religious Studies when faced with the statement “People must use scarce natural resources for the world to improve”!
