The Carbon RushBook - 2014
Written by award-winning documentarian Amy Miller, The Carbon Rush focuses on the real meaning of Carbon trading, where countries can buy and sell anothers' carbon emission through a system where carbon credits are traded like stocks and bonds. It is really a zero-sum formula where the amount of carbon-based pollution is not being reduced--only moved by brokers among countries. Credits are then given which are used to bankroll huge industrial operations, many of which are ravaging both the world's poor and their environments, many of which are aboriginal. -- Provided by publisher.
