3 Questions: How philosophy can address the problem of climate change | MIT News

"Is the obligation to act on climate change a matter of distributive justice, restitution, or insurance against catastrophe? Which should be our focus? These questions bridge theory and practice, moral principle and political strategy," says philosopher Kieran Setiya.

Malta registers largest drop in carbon emissions across EU

With a decrease of 18.2%, Malta in 2016 registered the largest drop in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions across the European Union, Eurostat data has shown.

Other countries to mark significant decreases include Bulgaria (-7%), Portugal (-5.7%) and the United Kingdom (-4.8%).

However, taking the EU as a whole, it is estimated that CO2 decreased only by 0.4% in 2016 when compared to the previous year. This is due to the fact that, according to Eurostat estimates, CO2 emissions rose in 2016 in a majority of EU member states. The highest increase was recorded in Finland (+8.5%), followed by Cyprus (+7%), Slovenia (+5.8%) and Denmark (+5.7%).
