63 countries are Contribution Free in ClimatePositions
63 of 145 countries with full data are Contribution Free in ClimatePositions 2010. See the list below. The diagram above show these countries’ total share of the global: 1) Population (41.9%), 2) GDP(ppp-$) (10.4%), 3) CO2 Emission (8.4%) and 4) Contribution (0.0%). The total global Climate Contribution (climate debt) was 2,834 billion US$ in 2010 but the world’s most powerful leaders defend their national economic privileges with immature persistence!
A hypothetical example: If the 63 Contribution Free countries made a deal with the 28 countries with a Contribution (debt) of $1 to $150 per capita – an agreement on the payments of their climate debt to a global fund – this fund would hold $2,277 billion, at the disposal of climate and environmental projects in 91 countries with 76% of the world’s Population and 40% of the global CO2 Emissions (carbon dioxide).
The 63 Contribution Free countries:
- Burkina Faso
- Central African Rep.
- Congo (Brazzaville)
- Costa Rica
- Côte d’Ivoire
- Dem. Rep. Congo
- El Salvador
- Myanmar (Burma)
- Papua New Guinea
- Sierra Leone
- Sri Lanka
