Yes because we all should be aware of the environment and do our best to keep it healthy and clean. So should developing countries be responsible for protecting the environment as well ?Yes! I do however understand that developing countries are less fortunate than that of other countries but again they too live on this earth so they should also share the responsibility of protecting our environment.

Side: yes

I think they should because everyone has to help out not one person can do it alone

Side: yes

yes, because if you have the resources and time you are fully capable to help. you shouldnt be selfish with your time and resources. the environment is really "in" and everyone wants to go green so i think helping less fortunate counties out ties in with hrlping the environment.

Side: yes

i think yes they should force developing countries to protec the environment because i think that many countries don't do anything to protect the environment and the world would be better if the developed countries force developing countries to protec the environment, because that way we could live better.

I think they should force develping countries to protect the enviroment. Mainly because they are responsible for cutting down the most forest. They have all the rainforests in their country. They might not know that the whole world depends on their small country. They don't really care so they sell all their paper and wood to make money. But they are hurting the whole world.

Side: yes

Developed countries should force developing countries to protect the environment because developing countries are able to harm our environment trying to get a good technological development therefore we must protect the place where we live even if we force developing countries to protect our environment. =]

Developed countries should force developing countries to protect the environment because we all live in the world together, and all the other countries need to contribute to our environment as well, even if the developed countries need to help out.

Side: yes

Yes i think they should so we all can live in a better place we need to protect ourselves. If we don't take care of others who will? We live out of our enviroment.

Side: yes
1 point

Yes, because if we get them to start changing there ways now they won't make the same mistakes as all these big countries. If they start enviromentally friendly then they will stay that way. Not like us in America, were we are trying to be enviromently friendly but can't change are ways cus we are to use to the way we've been living.

Side: yes
1 point

Yes, I think that we should all do something to help the environment. I mean, we live here. We should keep up with it and keep it beautiful so other people can live here after we're gone. If we don't do anything about all our environmental issues now, everything is going to get all messed up. We're not going to have a place to live. We have to give back to nature for letting us live here and stuff. I don't know, I'm just not down for letting the Earth go to sh!t.

Side: yes

Side: yes

Yes developed countries should force developing countries to protect the environment, because in the end the main focus is, is that it helps all of us, all round, even if some people are blind to the fact that it does help in the end, the developed countries are more experienced and should also be respected, and if they're taking time off of their affairs to help out another country, that shows how caring they are.

THE DEVELOPED COUNTRIES SHOULD BE AN EXAMPLE FOR THOSE COUNTRIES DEVELOPING . WE ONLY HAVE ONE WORLD WE SHOUL TAKE CARE OF IT

Side: yes
1 point

Protecting the environment is crucial to the survival of every species on earth. Not only should countries be forced to protect the environment, they should just be trying to do it already. This planet is loosing natural resources and is only getting worse at with the way we polute it and treat it poorly.

Side: yes
1 point

Yes i think they should. We have to fight to save the world so there is no room to be selfish at all. We need to help save this world or we will all die.

Side: yes
1 point

I say yes because we should all join together and save our world!!! It's not going to work out if one is constructing and the others destructing. There has to be an effort from everybody to live in a better world.

Side: yes
1 point

i think the other developing countries should protect the environment because global warning is happening and i don't think people want to die. They should help out in their own countries and also other countries. If they knew what's going on around the world they would care. I say they should, if they don't then they can die

Side: yes
1 point

yes because it is everyones responsibility in earth to protect their own enviroment.because not only one country or person is in charge of their own enviroment.

Side: yes

Side: No

developed countries shouldnt force developing countries protect the enviroment but they should help them protect it if they decide to. They should help them by helping them not make the same mistakes developed countries already have. they should tell them which techology is good for the enviroment and which one is not.

Side: No
1 point

Yes. Our world is in danger because of the enviroment. But developed countries should not force less fortunate countries to protect the enviroment. Those countries have more things to worry about. Maybe the better off countries can help assist the country in need, but they should definetly not froce this upon them.

Side: No
1 point

I personally don't think that developed countries should force developing countries to protect their own land. This is a hypocritical move on the part of the developed countries. The nations that are hoping to become more urbanized and better their living conditions cannot do so when they are restricted from using their own land, selling their natural resources and fully taking advantage of their land's goods. If the dominating countries would have been obligated to do the same... they would have never reached their height in power, so why put a cap on how strong another nation can grow? The more powerful a nation, the better their citizens can live, the better they live... the more human lives are saved.

Side: No

Ill just put a simple answer for my choice. Big should protect the young or feeble. ask yourself this... would you want to be protect by a police or a security guard if there was a bank robbing the answer is simple because 1 most likely has more knowledge about experiences like that situation

Side: No
1 point

no, no no no no no... no one should be forced to do anything, well in the U.S.A. they shouldnt... if you choose not to protect your enviorment then hey thats you

Truthfully, developing COUNTRIES are on their own. They are not a part of the country they just broke off of, so why would the country that used to control them want to help them? Or vice versa, why would the other country WANT them to help? They broke off for their reasons and they probably want nothing to do with their old country.

Side: No
1 point

the developing countries should not be forced to protect the enviroment because the developed countries have enough resouces to do that themselfs... they need to man up

Side: No
1 point

developing countries should learn how to protect their own enviroment. cause sooner or later they will realize what needs to be done.

Side: No
1 point

If a country is developing then the country wouldn't understand why they were being forced to protect there own environment. It would be like asking a baby to change its own diaper. All they would do is fight us on it. Even in the event that they do decide "change there own diaper. " We would have had no right to force them to. The environment is every ones, its not just for the developed country's to control. After all if there developing, we should let the develop. That means letting the develop there own ideas and own ways of doing things. If there doing something the wrong way then suggest an idea, if they don't listen, let them learn the hard way.

Side: No
1 point

No, because it is the other countries' choice to protect the enviroment or not. Forcing others will only leave a bad reputation and the other country might do the opposite of what they are suppose to do because they are being forced to do something.

Side: No
1 point

I dont think they should force them instead they should help them to make their country safer and cleaner so they could protect the environment, but yeah they shouldnt force them they should help them.

Side: No

I do not think we should force. I think it all about what they think is best or maybe have a wise discussion or something. I think it is what the people want and not the goverment. Who ever buys the land should do what ever they want with their land. It would be nice though if they did try to save the enviorment and help animals.

A developed country can't force anything

Not only can we not force...but we can't even interfere

Side: No
1 point

No because developed countries have better technology and more advanced systems for protecting the environment. Developing countries have to worry about growth and esablishing themselves. Many developing countries can hardly feed their citizens or regulate their economies. They shouldn't have to worry about protecting the environment also.

The developed countries should be liable for protecting the economy because the developing countries aren't developed meaning they're not fully ready to take on big actions, one being the economy. The developed countries should be liable because they have better logics to protect the enviornment. Although, I do believe that the developing countries should help out, but not be fully liable.

Side: No

Im against pollution as much as the next guy, but the environment is doing the same thing it's done for millions of years. These theories about we are the main reason for climate change is all propaganda. Therefore, the developing countries should focus on building their economy, rather than helping something that's a natural occurance.

Side: No
