COP26 Glasgow: Why equity is key to stopping climate change. Indepth presentation by Sunita Narain

Sunita Narain Director General, Centre for Science and Environment traces the inequities of emissions that has led to run away climate change. Issues such as cumulative historical emissions are slowly being phased out of the climate change discourse thereby removing the responsibility of a handful of countries like the US, the UK, the EU, Japan, Russia, Canada and Australia for creating the problem of global warming. Since 2001, China too has become part of the problem. Together the seven rich countries along with China will control over 70% of the carbon space left between 2020 and 2030.
