Emerging economies enforce climate laws

Emerging economies are slowly enforcing climate laws.

Nearly 500 laws have been passed in nations around the world to control climate change, with developing economies led by Mexico and China advancing the most since last year, according to a study by Globe International.

Approximately 62 of the 66 nations studied have either passed or are pushing for compelling climate or energy-relevant laws. Today, Globe reported that Venezuela, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Canada need ‘’flagship’’ legislation, according to the group of international lawmakers.
