What is the price of our luxury?


China01 The Worldwatch Institute said the booming economies of China and India are "planetary powers that are shaping the global biosphere" and that the two countries' high economic growth hides a reality of severe pollution. It said the planet's resources could not keep pace with such growth. This US think-tank has warned, Earth lacks the water, energy and agricultural land to allow China and India to attain Western living standards…

The Prophet Rael made the following comments:

“Of course, a US report saying that the boom in development of poor countries threaten the world...in other words "stay poor and underdeveloped so we can continue to waste energy in our luxurious way of life while you are starving " ...a great neo colonialist and imperialist message.
The right way would be to say: "in order to balance the pollution generated by poor countries having a wonderful booming development we, the rich countries, will invest heavily in clean energy technologies and reduce drastically our emissions, even if it means being a little poorer for a while, so the poor world can enjoy the economic boom and equal us in wealth, and then we will give away for free to developing countries the new clean technologies we will discover as a sign of humanitarian help."
