Should countries honor their climate debts?

8 septiembre 2015

All countries have contributed to recent climate change, but some much more so than others. Those that have contributed more than their fair share have accumulated a climate debt, owed to countries that have contributed less to historical warming. This is the implication of a new study in which a researcher shows how national carbon and climate debts could be used to decide who should pay for the global costs of climate mitigation and damages.
