Ecologist article advocating CapGlobalCarbon-style approach to eliminating greenhouse gases while reducing inequality

A recent article in the Ecologist magazine by Laura Bannister and Paul Harnett advocates capping carbon on a global basis and distributing the proceeds from the sale of fossil fuel permits. This approach is along the same lines as the Feasta climate group’s CapGlobalCarbon initiative. The article also contains other useful analyses and links: https://theecologist.org/2019/aug/06/basic-income-and-global-commons

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.
