Two important new Feasta documents just published

May 29, 2008 Comments Off on Two important new Feasta documents just published by

Two important documents are being printed today. One is “Cap and Share – A fair way to cut greenhouse emissions”, a 32 page Feasta booklet explaining how C&S could be used to halt climate change at a global level. You can read a summary and download the entire paper here. Hardcopies will be available next week for €5, postpaid.

The other is a 106-page report commissioned by Comhar, the Irish national sustainable development council, from a British consultancy on the way Cap and Share could be used at a national level to control Ireland’s greenhouse emissions. It is very favourable to C&S and shows that it is superior to a carbon tax. This report can be downloaded here (PDF document, 1.3 MB). Printed copies will be available next week for €25 postpaid.
