Oxfam research: Double of CO2 emissions caused by 1% World's richest compared to poorest 50%

New research compiled in a report by Oxfam and the Stockholm Environment Institute suggests that between 1990 and 2015 "The richest 10 percent accounted for over half (52 percent) of the emissions added to the atmosphere between 1990 and 2015. The richest one percent were responsible for 15 percent of emissions during this time – more than all the citizens of the EU and more than twice that of the poorest half of humanity (7 percent)".
