Now that some of the poorer countries are becoming more technology-oriented, some of their carbon emmision levels are going up. Richer countries need to cut back on emission to make up for this, because they use more technology than the poorer countries. Both the poorer and richer countries could use alternate energy, such as wind and solar, to run their countries. Building windmills and solar panels is expensive, so this is not a very practical immediate option. However, if countries promoted recycling more than they do, it would greatly reduce the carbon footprint. Instead of having just trash cans on the streets and around malls, recycling bins could be added next to them. Below, I attached a link of the carbon emmisions per country in 2011.
