“What we call Man's [sic] power over Nature turns out to be a power exercised by some men over other men with nature as its instrument.”
- C S Lewis, British author and scholar (1898-1963)
The new briefing from Carbon Trade Watch examines the relationship between free-market economic forces and climate change policy while scrutinising the rhetoric and reality behind promises on climate made by the most powerful politicians in the world - the G8. It also explores the origins of free-market environmentalism and analyses the conflicts and synergies that arise when the worlds of trade and environment collide.
