Every week for the next few months, we will be posting a new chapter from our book Fleeing Vesuvius on this site so that people have the chance to discuss the ideas it contains. We are doing this because many people find it helpful to debate and analyse unfamiliar ideas with others before deciding whether to accept them or not. Previous chapters can be found here.
In this week’s article, Laurence Matthews discusses Cap & Share: a fair, effective, cheap, empowering and simple way to reduce emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. It could form the basis of a wider global climate framework but how realistic is it to call for its introduction?
Note: Feasta is a forum for exchanging ideas. By posting on its site Feasta agrees that the ideas expressed by authors are worthy of consideration. However, there is no one ‘Feasta line’. The views of the article do not necessarily represent the views of all Feasta members.
