kEYSTONE XL PIPELINE

Post By gaia1 in American Monetary Matters

 GRADUATING FROM THE DISCUSSION OF KEYSTONE XLTHE PIPELINE TO ONE ABOUT THE WHY, WHAT AND HOW OF CARBON MONETARY STANDARD

 

I am opposed to the pipeline and support 350.org's and James Hansen's 350 ppm standard. I also  believe that a global carbon tax is needed in the sense of a fee and dividend as proposed by the above two proponents and US representative van Hollen's legislation.

 If the international community and particularly civil society were really serious about dealing with the all-pervasive challenge of the climate crisis, they might start discussion transforming the international monetary system of exchange rates and balance of payments by introducing the carbon standard of a specific amount of CO2e per person as presented in the Tierra Solution: Resolving the climate crisis through monetary transformation as proposed by Dutch-born sustainability sociologist Frans C. Verhagen.
