South, South East and East Asia: Economic Miracle but Environmental Disaster

Abstract


United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change-unfccc—appears to run into difficulties at the same time as it is holding its CO22 meeting in Morocco. The COP21 Agreement in Paris 2015 was merely a promise and no implementation has taken place. Now, the US under a new president could engage in the classical collective choice strategy of reneging. Coordination failures would make global warming all but certain, which constitutes an enormous NEGATIVE for the Asian miracle economies. If temperature rises > 4 degrees in the equator areas of Asia, then work, affluence, health, food as well as land and sea will be very badly affected.
