Postmodern climate change by Leigh Glover( Book )

"International responses to the crisis of climate change have been controversial, contentious, and, to date, largely unsuccessful. Despite concern and action for over two decades, the global rise in greenhouse gas emissions has yet to be arrested." "Leigh Glover argues that efforts by the international community to control climate change using modernity's usual scientific, economic, and governmental tools are inherently flawed, so that the problem of climate change defines modernity's end in ecological terms. This book offers a new way to understand the climate change problem and is concerned with problems of modernity and postmodernity in the context of contemporary environmental thought. Focussing on the international politics surrounding the UN agreement on climate change, the Framework Convention on Climate Change and its Kyoto Protocol, the author examines this important issue using the key aspect of climate change science, global environmental politics, and global environmental management."--Jacket

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

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 26 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
