Extreme carbon inequality: Why the Paris climate deal must put the poorest, lowest emitting and most vulnerable people firstOxfam, 2015Climate change is inextricably linked to economic inequality: it is a crisis that is driven by the greenhouse gas emissions of the ‘haves’ that hits the ‘have-nots’ the hardest.
