Review by Andreas Späth, Idasa
I’m a big fan of Patrick Bond, the director of the Centre for Civil Society and Professor of Development Studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, who has been a courageous and steadfast voice of opposition to political and economic orthodoxies in South Africa for years.
Can global warming be mitigated by carbon trading? With climate change posing perhaps the gravest threat to humanity in coming decades, and with free market economics still dominated by a few wealthy nations, it is little wonder so much effort has gone into creating a carbon market, no matter how much evidence has recently emerged about its flaws.
