Until they see each other as competition and fight amongst themselves, they won't change their behavior. Then when they see each other as competition, and your side provides an edge for one of the smarter ones, they get the right idea and use the adoption of the new regulation and its new alliance to benefit themselves. They see climate regulation as more of a threat and they are fighting it rather than themselves. They are all a bunch of competitive minds too so it is easy to get them to fight amongst themselves.

Basically a climate change Afghanistan but with fire protections. That is where the US government could sell some stuff. Just saying and there is money in it since there is also Madagascar too. It could be another arms race for both Russia and the US.
