Tale of two recessions: Europe enters one while Russia defeats another

In Europe, recession now seems imminent. The International Monetary Fund has said Germany and Italy are certainly going into a recession. These are among Europe’s largest economic drivers. Their fall will trigger the slippage of other countries into de-growth as well. At the core of Europe’s economic miseries is an intense energy crisis that countries are finding impossible to surmount. That’s because Russia has played a pivotal role in supplying energy to Europe for many years. Now, the European Union has chosen to put an end to that dependence, without figuring out a real way of replacing Russian supplies with … Continue reading Tale of two recessions: Europe enters one while Russia defeats another

Should developed nations pay reparations forΒ  β€˜loss and damage’ from climateΒ change?

At the last UN climate summit in 2021, COP26 in Glasgow, a group of largely developing nations representing six out of every seven people in the world called for developed countries to commit to pledging funds for loss and damage. However, this call faced opposition from large Western economies particularly the US and EU – and, ultimately, was rejected because of this opposition by the rich West.  The issue of loss and damage has been discussed for more than 30 years, and it is likely that loss and damage will be one of the dominant themes at COP27, the next round of UN climate negotiations taking … Continue reading Should developed nations pay reparations forΒ  β€˜loss and damage’ from climateΒ change?

Understanding the events leading to the crisis in Europe is therefore essential. We are therefore publishing here an edited transcript of … Continue reading Europe’s self made energy crisis

He emphasized that all nations are in favor of reducing emissions into the atmosphere, noting however that everything should be done in a timely manner. β€œAnd if you jump ahead, get … Continue reading Ditching Russian gas no way for EU to reach climate goals – Putin
