China leads in awareness-raising.

Here, they probably talk openly. (G8 in Italy, Foto by The White House)

„The Chinese press is preparing the Chinese for future increases in fees and taxes to fund the nation’s efforts to curb its greenhouse gas emissions.“ (source)

That is is stuff I want to read from every country. Climate Change will cost all of us huge amounts of money. The question is not if we have to pay, but when, how much and in what proportion towards each other. Isn’t it fair if rich countries people pay more (with a social balancing-methodology in place, of course)? Governments of the Global North should be honest and say it loud that their taxes and some fees have to rise in order to prevent climate change. But also governments in the Global South have to be honest and say, that they have to stark taxing according to the ecological footprint and that there are (most prominently physical) costs of climate change for their people.

Say it loud, leaders!:

Sorry my people, but you Americans all have to pay more in total – this is just how it works!

Es tut mir leid es so klar zu sagen, aber alle Menschen in Deutschland müssen mehr zahlen.

我很抱歉地说那么清楚,但在中国所有的人必须付出更多。

Jeg er ked af at sige det så klart, men alle mennesker i Danmark er nødt til at betale mere

Het spijt me te zeggen dat het zo duidelijk, maar alle mensen in ons land moeten meer betalen.

אני מצטער לומר את זה כל כך ברור, אבל כל האנשים במדינה שלנו צריכים לשלם יותר.

मैं यह तो स्पष्ट रूप से कह अफसोस है, लेकिन हमारे देश में सभी लोगों के लिए ज्यादा पैसा देना पड़ेगा.

Przykro mi to mówić tak wyraźnie, ale wszystkich ludzi w naszym kraju muszą płacić więcej.

Im “ n chwith i ddweud ei fod mor glir, ond yr holl bobl yn ein gwlad yn gorfod talu mwy.

Çok net bir şekilde söylemek, ama üzgünüm ülkemizde tüm insanların daha fazla ödemek zorunda.

Mi dispiace dirlo così chiaramente, ma tutte le persone nel nostro paese devono pagare di più.
