More about CapGlobalCarbon
In order to minimise the risks of irreversible climate change, CapGlobalCarbon (CGC) aims to ensure that the aggregate global emissions from fossil fuels steadily decrease to zero. This would be achieved by a progressively tightening cap on fossil fuel extraction. Furthermore, revenues from the auction of extraction permits would benefit the lowest consumers of fossil fuels. This compensation could substantially alleviate poverty and reduce global inequality. By steadily and predictably reducing the global dependence on fossil fuels the process proposed by CapGlobalCarbon would also hasten a smooth transition to a zero-carbon economy.
This system would act as a back-up to the UNFCCC negotiations, ensuring that the global community finally achieves effective action on climate change.It would help locally-based climate initiatives around the world to flourish by protecting them from the undermining influence of corporate lobbyists.
