The Asian continent emits most CO2s in the world, reflecting its enormous economic advances in several countries. It is all based upon an enormous consumption of energy, especially fossil fuels, regarded as the only essential means to take Asia out of its historical poverty. Thus, poor nations in Asia imitated the miracle economies. With abrupt climate change coming, Asian governments must participate in global coordination against global warming - the COP21 project. And with the melting of the Arctic and the emergence of permafrost methane, this energy transformation is as urgent as its huge management.
