Capturing Carbon and Conserving Biodiversity. The Modern Approach

Price: 34.95

Makes an overwhelming case for the maximum use of carbon sinks, particularly in the developing world, revealing in persuasive detail the benefits of a market-based system of reducing and sequestering carbon. Combined with emissions trading, this approach will maximize benefit to the rural poor and indigenous people, while promoting habitat preservation and biodiversity, watershed protection, and the mitigation of global warming. Such a strategy is the lowest cost approach, and the one most likely to succeed where central planning has failed.
