350 reasons why carbon trading won’t work
There are many reasons to oppose carbon trading. The most important is that carbon trading will not address climate change. Rising Tide North America together with Carbon Trade Watch and the Camp for Climate Action is launching a new website, 350 Reasons. The launch date is 24 October 2009, to coincide with the International Day of Climate Action. The point is not just that governments need to act to address climate change but that false solutions will make matters worse. Governments should not be looking for innovative ways to create loopholes for polluters or to create fortunes for carbon traders. Instead we need to dramatically reduce emissions – quickly. Carbon trading was created to avoid precisely that.
