The subject of climate justice is very powerfully, and rightly argued for by Sunita in that video. It’s indeed true that the developed world created models that appropriated not only our global commons, but often national resources too across the globe and benefited from this. They must take greater responsibility for the emissions cuts, as well as the huge transition to alternatives to these models. And of course, lead by example wrt the “giving up” of what we’ve decided over decades are markers of success and growth.
From our perspective, is it enough, or even safe to continue with the assumption that we have “pending growth” and “our share of emissions” due to us? It might seem risky to throw away the models and measures we’ve gotten accustomed to, but is it possible we’re shying away from a larger ambition of how we can take care of our people, chase the end goals of health, education, nutrition etc without the current means that we assume get us there that need us to emit more? That imagination needs a huge rethink, debate and consensus, but perhaps that’s the one to push towards and demand the beneficiaries of the models that have cause us collective harm pay for.
