COP21 in 22 words
By comparison to what it could have been, it’s a miracle. 
By comparison to what it should have been, it’s a disaster.
George Monbiot

Climate: the truth rarely sees the light of day. One of the most disturbing aspects of the public discussion of climate change is its delusional character. Click here for a message from Australia.

Carbon taxes and caps may be effective according to economic theory, but smart regulation will produce better climate policy in a politically real world. Click here for a paper by Mark Jaccard, Simon Fraser University.

VALUES

The question of «values» is re-emerging as a topic of substantial interest to some members of CACOR. Here is a link to "A Manifesto for Earth" by Ted Mosquin and the late Stan Rowe, to provide an initial foundation (Manifesto), and a link to a current issue, described as a "syndrome" rather than a scandal by Henry Mintzberg, (Syndrome).

Planet squeezed dry

Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.
