Plan B, Christchurch and a vision for Climate leadership.

Kyoto Protocol has been described as death by a thousand cuts (, 2003). New Zealand’s abandonment of carbon taxes intended to mitigate climate change highlights how convoluted, arbitrary and politically shortsighted Kyoto has become. Is there a science based, simple, fair and long term alternative, a Plan B?

The Anglican Archbishop and the World Council of Churches thinks so.

So does big business.

‘Contraction and Convergence’ [C&C] strategy’s ethical and equitable formula is a Bill before the British House of Commons. C&C obliges nations to contract GHG emissions to agreed ceiling and timeframes and manages long term, emissions on per capita basis.

Why not Plan B for Christchurch?
