Kyoto2: How to Manage the Global Greenhouse
Publisher: Zed Books
Kyoto2, by writer, journalist and broadcaster Oliver Tickell puts forward a strikingly original new solution to the tentative, failed steps of the Kyoto Protocol.Using a system of finite production rights for greenhouse gases, which would be traded by organizations on a global auction, Kyoto2 seeks to succeed where the original agreement failed. Regulated by an independent body, the funds could be poured back into healing the wounds inflicted by climate change. In his combination of idealism with realistic proposals, Tickell exposes the flaws in current approaches, and envisions a fairer and more effective system.
