"Green Energy Economies offers insight into the major drivers that are shaping a new future powered by clean energy sources. Assembling cutting-edge researchers as contributors, the book provides a comprehensive account of the shift underway, examining in detail the complexities and intricacies involved with such a transition. The book first details the promises and problems of a green energy transition. Next, it explores the economic benefits that a comprehensive strategy toward a green energy economy might create. Then it investigates how communities will be affected and explores the social, cultural, and other changes that are likely to result. Finally, it explores the shift toward new technologies in-depth. Green Energy Economies concludes with policy options that support a transition to a better energy, environmental, and economic future. The contributors argue that a green energy economy offers great promise, but its realization will require making hard choices, and soon. They argue for investments in renewable energy and economic systems that can deliver a sustainable and equitable future. This book makes a forceful case for a green future."--Provided by publisher

Climate shopping : putting the atmosphere up for sale by John Byrne( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The atmosphere is being transformed from a commons, where it is available for all in perpetuity, to a commodity whose usefulness for storing waste is to be allocated and traded among nations. Three groups are playing major roles in the debate over this transformation: science, business, and governments. Their participation in and impact on these global negotiations to govern the sky is examined in an effort to explain the emerging consensus in favour of an atmospheric commodity system. An alternative approach relying on principles of social equity and ecological sustainability is then proposed as a means to reclaim our atmospheric commons. Environmental non-government organizations commonly emphasize principles such as those in our proposal. Some members of the scientific, business and governmental communities have also voiced support for a new policy direction. Our arguments are intended to support efforts in these sectors to conceive an alternative policy paradigm. Because our criticisms challenge current tendencies to rely primarily on economic instruments, such as tradeable emission permits, to address the climate change problem, some may construe our position as opposing market-oriented policies of any kind. This is not correct. Incentive-based policies such as emissions trading can play an important part in tackling the climate change problem, if they are employed in an international framework with clear commitments to sustainability and equity. Our objection to the current approach is that it lacks a commitment to sustainability commensurate with the finding of the United Nations sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which has established from scientific evidence the need for a 60% or greater reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, our concern is that the current approach has failed to consider the dilemmas of inequality, historically accompanying market regimes
