Jeremy Moss “Exporting Harm” will discuss how fossil fuel exporting countries such as Australia have extra burdens in relation to their carbon budget.
Axel Gosseries will consider the importance of historical responsibility, "Does rejecting responsibility for historical emissions make a significant difference?"
