coal usage by coutrny (world atlas)

That’s coal production by country, not consumption. The US, for example, exports 15% of the coal produced for consumption in other countries.

Why don't developed countries invest in renewable energy projects in developing countries. Edit: typo

It risks a country’s energy security to have a large percentage of their energy supply in “foreign” hands

2022 will be remembered as the year hundreds of billions get sent to other countries and that is uplifting because corruption never happens and things always improve afterwards and tax dosent increase

Wealthy nations? Hah

Lots of countries are causing serious problems with their carbon fuel usage. Indonesia isn’t one of them.

Rich nations have the option to use better energy sources, poorer nations don't have options. This is absolutely a step in the right direction

Depends on how the offer is made. Indonesia is one of the places that could suck up the money and have nothing to show for it.

As developing countries become wealthier, their energy consumption also increases. Indonesia is one of those countries.

And we should stop all this bs about pointing fingers on who emits more CO2 and causing more environmental destruction. We're all guilty. Rich countries outsource cheap manufacturing to cheaper countries that cut on environmental standards to produce cheap goods we all take for granted. Then the rising middle class in these developing countries is catching up on consumption rate, topping up on the increasing greenhouse emission and adds to environmental degradation.

We're all guilty, and the sooner we recognise this instead of blaming each other and being cynical doomers, the sooner we could be more proactive as a collective to finding solutions on curbing climate change.
