In late November, the 2010 United Nations Climate Change Conference will be held in Cancun, Mexico. Most of the solutions being offered will center on carbon trading or cap and trade schemes – in other words, market based solutions to the problem.  But is there a way to approach the climate crisis other than through the language of economics? On this edition, a roundtable discussion about alternative ways to both understand, and solve the climate crisis.
