Island Nations can fight Climate Genocide with Carbon Debt & Carbon Credit Analysis

Green Blog

The contribution of each country to elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) can be calculated as Historical Climate Debt (1751-2006 CO2 pollution) minus Climate Credit (its fair share of the World’s terminal CO2 pollution budget of 600 Gt CO2 between 2010 and zero emissions in 2050). The atmospheric CO2 concentration reached 394 ppm in 2010 with a rate of increase of 2.4 million in 2010 and accordingly the “Rest of Europe” has a population of 738.2
