On Strategies for Avoiding Dangerous Climate Change: Elements of a Global Carbon Market

By Daniel Klingenfeld

Contributions by: Hans Joachim Schellnhuber

What are the prospects for averting dangerous climate change and which strategies offer promising avenues to successfully tackle this global challenge? These questions are at the heart of the analysis in this book that begins by evaluating the possibilities and limits of transnational cooperation in climate policy. The book then investigates the normative underpinnings for avoiding dangerous climate change and looks at policy instruments for climate protection. The final section turns to developing an implementation strategy centered on the innovative concept of a Modular Carbon Market as an institutional structure for global emissions management.
