Last week, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth-US, Sierra Club California and 24 other environmental and social groups sent a letter to California’s Governor, Jerry Brown, urging him to keep REDD carbon offsets out of California’s Global Warming Solutions Act (AB-32).
The University of Arizona’s Public Political Ecology Lab has produced a series of essays focussing on REDD and California’s cap and trade scheme under the Global Warming Solutions Act, AB-32.
Last week, REDD-Monitor posted a press release about a delegation of indigenous people who travelled to California to protest about the inclusion of carbon trading in the state’s Global Warming Solutions Act (AB32). This post looks at some of the responses to this “No REDD Tour“.
An international delegation of indigenous leaders from Brazil, Mexico and Ecuador is currently in California to oppose California’s proposed carbon offset scheme. The scheme could allow companies in California to meet limits on greenhouse gas emissions by buying carbon credits rather than reducing pollution at home.
