Korea's greenhouse gas emissions

South Korea’s Park Geun-hye administration scores zero when it comes to the willingness to scale back emissions of greenhouse gases. The Park administration evades the responsibility to address climate change by increasing nuclear power plants and losing grip on emission trading.

In other words, Korea bears a great duty in helping the international community reach a consensus to respond to post-2020 climate change.
