As you mentioned, it's very interesting that those most in need of economic growth (low income countries) seem most willing to accept economic harm if it means that we can address the climate change problem. Do you have any idea as to why Vietnam is leading the charge here though? With the high growth rate that they have been experiencing in recent years and their recent proclamation as one of the most desirable destinations for FDI, it would seem that they could truly see stalled growth were global climate change measures enacted. I'm curious as to whether it's just that the population is just that in tune with sustainable development (which in it of itself is fantastic) or there is some other motivating factor?
