Towards climate safety and justice: briefing and discussion about CapGlobalCarbon

category dublin | environment | event notice author Tuesday June 07, 2016 23:53author by Feasta - Feasta Report this post to the editors

On the afternoon of June 8th 2016 in Dublin there will be a briefing on CapGlobalCarbon. CapGlobalCarbon is a proposal for non-governmental actors to create a new global system to

(a) make sure the necessary reductions in total global carbon emissions are achieved
(b) reduce emissions in a way that also reduces poverty and inequality.

The system would operate as a back-up to the inter-governmental negotiations and provide vital reinforcement to community-led climate initiatives worldwide.

The purpose of this afternoon is to brief attendees on the proposal, set it in a context of the commons and social justice, and to generate ideas about how to implement CapGlobalCarbon.

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.

CapGlobalCarbon is a proposal by members of Feasta. We are looking for other individuals and organisations to help implement it.
