How to Reduce Carbon Emissions Equitably
World Economics, March 2014
So far international negotiations designed to reduce carbon emissions have come up against the clash of views as to the equitable way of sharing out the ‘burden’ among countries.

Any equitable compromise between the different possible criteria needs to take account of these obstacles to their being made operational.
