This submittal from Feasta calls for an upstream permit system to ensure that fossil fuel supply is gradually phased out in the northeastern and Atlantic U.S. States, along with a per-capita distribution of revenue from the sale of permits. It also emphasises international climate justice.
Caroline Whyte finds this book by Feidhlim Harty to be very accessible and full of useful information.
This submittal makes a series of recommendations with regard to carbon pricing and international climate justice, deriving from the research behind the Feasta Climate Group's Cap and Share and CapGlobalCarbon initiatives.
"If key principles are observed or key attitudes developed, many structural problems can work themselves out in practice" writes Anne Ryan in the third post of her Enough is Plenty blog series.
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…
Professor James K. Boyce's book explains why capping total global carbon emissions would put us on a path to fixing our enormous emissions problem, rather than just providing a tiny bandaid as offsets do. Review by Mike Sandler.
