Rathin Roy presents an insightful discourse about the inequalities in consumption of resources and in the benefits of green technologies:

First, “development” continues to be about all nations and peoples aspiring to attain the levels of consumption and comfort that rich people and nations enjoy. Decarbonisation would not discommode lifestyle choices of the rich.

At the root, this would require an acknowledgement that the present climate crisis has been caused by disproportionate wealth accumulation, by a minority of humans, in a few concentrated geographies, leading to highly unequal patterns of production and consumption. It is this, rather than the unipolar focus on technologies, that should underpin climate action.”
