The Pacific island of Kiribati could be completely submerged by rising sea levels in just seventy years, but the nation is among the world’s lowest emitters of C02.
Australia, on the other hand, is among the highest. In 2019, we emitted twenty-one times more C02 per capita than Kiribati.
Today, we’re bringing you three stories about climate injustice — stories about the world’s richest countries accelerating climate change, and the developing countries paying the price.
Reporting by Timothy Evetts, Nuoxin Li, and Jerome Des Preaux.
