How China, the world’s top polluter, avoids paying for climate damage

In 1992, the United Nations classified China as a developing country, as hundreds of millions of its citizens lived in poverty. A lot has changed since then: China is now the world’s second-largest economy and the biggest annual emitter of planet-warming greenhouse gases. Average Chinese today are 34 times richer and nearly four times more polluting. But the classification has stayed the same for the past three decades, frustrating diplomats from developed nations who say it has allowed Beijing to avoid paying its fair share to help poor countries cope with the ravages of climate change.

    Are there any laid rules that the more the pollution the hefty the payment?once we get such laws in place all countries would become responsible because sometimes the less polluters suffers the most.

            China, as the world's top polluter, must take greater responsibility for its carbon emissions and the resulting climate damage.

              There is no excuse for Chinese environmental pollution. Being a developing country does not encourage any Nation to pollute the environment
