What can the EU do to prevent carbon leakage - the sabotaging of its climate policy by non-EU industries? This submission provides some suggestions and also places a strong emphasis on international climate justice.
This paper calls for the introduction of a suite of climate-related reforms in the EU that include limiting fossil fuel production and imports at source, placing a limit on carbon fees along with a quota system, introducing per-capita allocations of revenue from a carbon fee, and forming a partnership with a group of Global South countries to promote climate justice.
"Critique has been the subject of volumes of philosophical and scholarly work, so my purpose here is to consider some aspects of a critique that is congruent with the philosophy and practice of Enough, and putting care at the centre of all our decision-making," writes Anne Ryan in the latest post from her Enough is Plenty blog.
"With a better understanding of eros, we could all demand a social-ecological contract that supports human capacities for vitality, healing and health, care, creativity, innovation, diversity and contribution," writes Anne Ryan.
"In this time of ecological and social crises, it is essential to be the best human beings we can be, to carve out conviviality and convivial spaces in the midst of the struggle to create something better. Even in desperate times, there is a lot of potential for this," writes Anne Ryan.
"Enough and the related actions of coping, critiquing and creating are about embracing possibility, which is different from prediction," writes Anne Ryan in the sixth instalment of her blog, Enough is Plenty.
