Wednesday, Jul 23, 2008
Join the discussion about Carbon Trading: A Critical Conversation on Climate Change, Privatisation and Power, Larry Lohmann, editor, Dag Hammarskjold Foundation, the Durban Group for Climate Justice and The Corner House, 2006, 350 pages
"Pollution trading ... is a US invention now at the centre of efforts to address climate change worldwide. It's being enthusiastically pushed by governments, international organisations, business and even many NGOs...The rest of this special report will argue that this approach isn't working, and even threatens to derail more constructive movements to address global warming. The US experience with pollution trading is an argument not for, but rather against, greenhouse-gas trading programmes such as the Kyoto Protocol and the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme."
