Because that would not give alarmists an excuse to lecture people in developed countries for their carbon "sins". Remember that climate change policy is driven by the tenets of the eco-religion rather than common sense.

Go to urban China and take a nice deep breathe of that thick smoggy air.  Mmmm!

Sure, access is fine. However one of the great accomplishments of many lives is the having and raising of children. Thats a tough habit to break and I'm not sure its something that should be broken.

Before the birth control pill in the west came in the 60's, women had lots of babies.  The pill allowed them to finally control their ability to have babies, and they chose to have fewer kids.  Before this, it was typical that the man wanted to have sex with his wife, and he did, and that resulted in lots of pregnancies.  If women and couples in developing countries still choose to have lots of kids, they're still free to choose that, nobody's ramming pills down the woman's throat.

Condom access will also help the HIV crisis in Africa.

People in poverty stricken areas barely have a carbon footprint.  We're the problem, not them.

Much of China is still quite poor, but 1.3 billion people and increasing industrialization mean they produce twice the CO2 than the 2nd place leader (USA).  India has very low carbon output per person but still has 5x the CO2 output than Canada.  Poor people still need to eat, that's a lot of cattle farting LOL.  I'm not saying places like Canada don't need to do their part, but when China alone emits about 30% of the world's total CO2 output it's a problem.  If/when India industrializes (re: reduces its poverty) anywhere near China it's going to be a massive problem for the environment, not just CO2 but simply from a resources consumption perspective too.

Agreed, because they are following our lead. As leaders we need to assume responsibility and clean up our ways.

We need to do better yes, and may create certain norms others will follow along with the technology mostly invented by us, but will India or China be motivated if it's population is much poorer & it's cheaper to burn coal and gasoline?  I see China motivated to clean up because some of its air is disgusting, not much else.
